West Brom to rival Leeds, Brighton for Man Utd winger James

West Brom have joined the race to sign Man Utd winger Daniel James on loan next month, according to reports.

The 23-year-old has been tipped for an Old Trafford exit after spending lots of time on the bench this season.

Plenty of Premier League clubs are rumoured to be interested in a deal.

According to the Daily Star, Sam Allardyce’s team want to sign James to help them in their relegation fight.

The report states that the Baggies have formally enquired about his availability in preparation for the January transfer window.

James would provide them with an extra option going forward. He would compete with Callum Robinson and Grady Diangana for a starting place.

West Brom are joined by a host of other top flight teams, including Leeds, Brighton and Burnley.

Those teams are hoping to pounce on James’ tough situation with Man Utd.

He’s failed to become an important first team player under boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

He’s made just five Prem appearances this season and has scored one goal in that time.

His solitary goal came in the 6-2 victory over Leeds, which resulted in praise from Solskjaer.

James was clearly trying to impress after starting in a surprise selection.

The Wales international also started in the 2-2 draw against Leicester City yesterday.

He was substituted after playing 54 minutes at the King Power Stadium.

Man Utd officials will now be in discussion over which destination is best for James, if they want him to leave on loan.

The attacking prowess of Leeds would give him a chance to shine going forward.

Brighton are capable of some attractive football, meaning he could form a good relationship with the likes of Neal Maupay and Adam Lallana.

Despite their new interest, West Brom might not be the best destination for James. They’re currently struggling for goals and points which means it would take an enticing offer for him to join the club.
