Leeds United have had a bid of £6-million verbally accepted by Swansea. However, with additions, the sum will be more around the £10-million mark. Swansea are happy with the terms .
Leeds have made their intentions of signing Daniel James clear, with their interest being public knowledge at this stage. However, with Swansea demanding no less than £12-million for the young Welshman, Leeds United fans remained doubtful of the signing going through.
Today, Leeds United put their first formal bid in for Daniel James and Swansea have accepted all of the terms other than the date of payment and sell on clause. It’s very rare that negotiations fall through because of this, so we can therefore expect James to arrive at Elland Road by Thursday leaving just player negotiations to be handled ahead of a medical at Leeds United.
Leeds United have had a rough season in terms of finalising transfers, with the likes of Vydra, Abel Hernandez, Jozefzoon & Barnes all opting away from Elland Road at the very final moment.
We predict the announcement of Daniel James coming to Leeds to Thursday afternoon. More to follow.
