The Welshman had a great start to life as a United player early last season.
But his form faded fast, and he is now on the fringes of the first team.
James was even linked with a move to Leeds United on loan.
But Sky Sports News reports that even with Leeds' loan offer, the Wales international wants to stay at United.
He has told boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer he will fight for his place this season.
