Daniel James to stay at Man Utd and fight for future under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer despite Leeds transfer links

DANIEL JAMES will stay at Manchester United this summer, according to reports.

The Welshman has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, having not scored in any of his last 30 Premier League appearances.

SunSport exclusively revealed last weekend that Leeds United remain interested in James, having come close to signing the 22-year-old back in January 2019 – before Swansea pulled the plug on the deal at the last minute.

But according to the MEN, James remains in manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's plans and will continue to fight for his place in the team.

James initially hit the ground running at Old Trafford, scoring three goals in his first four games following his £15million switch from Swansea.

But they swiftly dried up, although he did manage a further seven assists in his maiden campaign at the Theatre of Dreams.

The ten-cap international has now largely been usurped by teenager Mason Greenwood for the right-wing position.

And Solskjaer has also prioritised recruiting another right-winger this summer.

Jadon Sancho is still the club's No1 target – while the likes of Ousmane Dembele and Douglas Costa have also been mentioned.

James was surprisingly selected as United belatedly got their campaign underway against Crystal Palace at the weekend.

But his performance in the team's dismal 3-1 defeat to the Eagles will not have done him any favours.

He failed to make an impact, and was subsequently hooked at half-time.

And he remained an unused substitute last night as the Red Devils beat Luton 3-0 at Kenilworth Road in the EFL Cup.
