Manchester United are close to signing Wales international Daniel James after agreeing a fee with Swansea City.
The 21-year-old has enjoyed a breakout season in the Championship, having contributed five goals and ten assists in 38 league appearances for the Swans.
Having been declared frontrunners for the winger last week, an agreement now appears to be in place (via MailOnline Sport) to bring James to Old Trafford, as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to rebuild his Man Utd squad.
James' most notable asset is his blistering pace, but he can also play on either flank - with Solskjaer lining him up to play on the right wing to cut inside on his stronger left foot, having sent club scouts to specifically check his suitability for the role.
He has also broken through on the international stage this season, with United legend Ryan Giggs handing him two senior appearances for Wales, which included a goal on his competitive home debut in the 1-0 win over Slovakia.

James came very close to joining promotion challengers Leeds United on deadline day in January after the club's agreed to a fee much lower than the sum being mentioned now, but the deal fell through at the 11th hour thanks after Swansea's board pulled the plug.
