Leeds fans react to Graham Potter’s comments on Daniel James

As reported by The Yorkshire Evening Post’s Phil Hay, Swansea boss Graham Potter has told Daniel James to ignore speculation about his future at the Liberty Stadium and admitted that he was unaware of any interest in the player on Leeds’ behalf.

The Whites are clearly keen to get a new wide-man on the books and identified James as their number one target this month as they look towards the final stretch of the season in hopes of securing their long-awaited return to the top flight.

The departure of Samu Saiz to Getafe has left Marcelo Bielsa a creator short and the squad is looking increasingly thin after some of the younger players not in the first team picture were loaned out too, so it is no surprise that the enigmatic Argentine wants to bring in some fresh blood this month.

James, 21, has chalked up one goal and four assists in 17 league appearances this season and, if the Swans want to be in with a shout of a play-off spot, losing the Welshman would slash their chances.

With his contract expiring in 18 months time, the suggestion that Potter has had to convince James to focus on his football rather than transfer speculation is a big indicator that his head has been turned by the prospect of a switch to Elland Road.
