Man Utd and Swansea agree James fee

Manchester United and Swansea City have struck terms over a fee for Daniel James.

The Daily Mail says an agreement to the tune of £15m is now in place between the two clubs as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer begins rebuilding his United squad for the long term.

James has caught United's eye after enjoying a breakthrough season at Swansea, making 38 appearances, scoring five times and setting up 10 goals.

He has also broken into the Wales set-up during this campaign, playing twice for former United winger Ryan Giggs' senior side and scoring on his competitive home debut against Slovakia.

James is capable of playing on either flank and through the middle but United have earmarked him for a right-wing role and made specific checks on his suitability for the position during their enquiries.
