Manchester United winger Daniel James has reportedly decided he wants to stay and fight for his place at the club despite being linked with a transfer away in January.
This is according to a report in the Manchester Evening News, which states that James doesn’t want to leave Old Trafford amid rumours of a possible move to Leeds.
The Wales international has fallen out of favour at United in recent times, despite initially getting off to a fine start to life at the club when he joined from Swansea City last season.
James hasn’t really progressed as many would have hoped, and is now barely getting a look-in from manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
It remains to be seen if the 23-year-old can turn things around as he perhaps expects, and it may soon be that leaving Man Utd is the best thing for his development.
James might perhaps benefit from a loan move so he can play more regularly and gain some experience in the Premier League, but for now it looks like he could be sticking around for a little longer.
Of course, United may well feel differently and might be keen to offload the player if the opportunity arises.
