Swansea City boss Graham Potter has confirmed that the Welsh club are in contract renegotiation talks with a trio of first team players – Daniel James, Leroy Fer and Mike van der Hoorn – as reported by Wales Online.
James nearly left the Liberty Stadium during the recent January transfer window, as Leeds United pushed to sign the 21-year-old winger, before the Swans pulled the plug on the deal late on, as reported by The Telegraph.
Whites boss Marcelo Bielsa has previously spoken about how he believes James would be a fine addition to his squad, as reported by Leeds Live. According to The Mirror, James remains a target for the Elland Road club who may resume their pursuit of the winger in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Should James sign a new contract in south Wales, though, that could prove fatal to Leeds’ hopes of acquiring his services.
After the story emerged that the Swans are in talks with James, plenty of Leeds fans took to Twitter to give their reactions…

James should agree to the contract let them go through all the hard work to get it sorted then at the last minute say he doesn’t want to sign it and come to Leeds for free

Got to laugh, we don’t really want you but do you fancy signing another contract so we can sell your for more?
