Leeds tried to sign James throughout the winter window, and fans are annoyed the Whites failed to get the deal over the line
It might be the international break, but that didn’t stop a group of Leeds United supporters moaning about their club’s transfer business.
The Whites looked certain to sign Dan James, the Swansea winger, on deadline day of the January window, but the move broke down in the final minutes.
James was allegedly waiting at Elland Road to be unveiled as a Leeds player, but Swansea pulled out of the deal reportedly due to issues concerning the loan fee they would be paid by the Whites.
Leeds were set to bring James, who was keen on the move, in on loan for the remainder of the season, before signing him permanently this summer should they win promotion to the Premier League.
But Swansea claimed the two clubs failed to negotiate ‘suitable terms’, and James continues to be a key player for the Liberty Stadium club.
James’ impressive form this season has seen him break into the senior Wales squad as well, and he scored his first goal for the Dragons on Sunday afternoon.
The 21-year-old netted after just six minutes of Wales’ Euro 2020 qualifier against Slovakia with a superb strike, and he continued to be a threat throughout with his direct runs and speed on the ball.
And Leeds supporters took to social media to react to James’ performance, with many frustrated at his failed move to Elland Road.
