Many CFC fans are tweeting about James following this news, predicting he’ll be a future captain for the west London giants, as well as the best right-back in the world.
Liverpool fans and Trent Alexander-Arnold might have something to say about that, but for this lot, James is the real deal and this big news has made their night…
By the end of his contract he'll be the best RB in the world.
