Potter managed James last season with Swansea City and spoke of the winger before Sunday's defeat at Old Trafford.

He told The Argus: I can see Dan's qualities there.

His pace is incredible. Then his ability to reproduce that pace often is of such a high level.

Then he has got that courage and resilience that people don't see so much.

He gets kicked all over the place but gets back up again.

He has had to deal with personal circumstance off the pitch which I am sure have challenged him and he has managed to settle into a club like Manchester United and play quite regularly.

To move from the Championship to Manchester United is not to easy to do and I think he has done it really well."

Surprisingly well? Potter replied: I think it is fair to say there is always that element of unknown when you take such a big step.

But, when you know the person, Dan is an incredible lad.

Such resilience, such personality, character. He does his work for the team.

And then he has his own attributes which obviously attract Manchester United. I'm delighted for him."

The Cherries striker, currently on loan with the Welsh outfit, popped up to head home Connor Roberts's delivery in stoppage time to secure all three points against Wigan Athletic.

Surridge told the Swansea website: To be honest, I didn't realise how late it was in the game.

I didn't realise it was the 93rd minute - I didn't even know we were in stoppage time."

Cherries academy graduate Surridge now has five goals in 14 appearances in all competitions for the Championship outfit.

He added: It was brilliant.

I saw the ball coming into the box and thought that Andre (Ayew) was going to get there before me.

One of us was going to get it. I just made sure I got a good connection on the header and I was delighted with the result of it.

So, it's a special moment. My first Championship goal against QPR was special and getting a 93rd-minute winner is right up there as one of my best moments with Swansea so far."

Veron Parkes scored a hat-trick and new signing Odubeko netted on his debut just days after his move from Manchester United had been confirmed.

All those times we've missed chances in the last six weeks came to the fore in this game and take a look," assistant coach Mark Phillips said afterwards.

Parkes was brilliant all three of his goals were three clinical finishes, none of them were tap-ins and Mipo led the line really well.

Although our opponents lost their discipline, we have to be pleased. We played well, and it was a good all-round team performance."

Woodman's deal runs until the end of the season but given how he's taken to life in the Championship - conceding the fewest away goals so far this season - Cooper has fielded question over the Englishman's immediate future.

"There's no inclination that they want him back, and we hope that stays like that," Cooper replied.

"I'm pretty sure he's of the same opinion aswell.

"There's always recall options on loan players, there's nothing out of the norm on that, particularly with goalkeepers."

He added: Freddie's a really good example of the culture, of the way we're playing, the way we're working and players really getting the best out of themselves.

"He's not the only one. You look at some of the other young players, and the more of that we can have, it can only be a positive."

The 21-year-old joined the Red Devils from Championship club Swansea for 15million over the summer.

James told JD Football's #TalkingTekkers: "I came to United maybe thinking I could be a fringe player. I wanted to try and get in the team as quick as I could but I thought it may take a bit more time.

"I got chucked in a lot earlier than I thought. But I was ready for it. I worked hard during the summer. It was about proving people wrong and showing what I can do.

"But now I have started to play I have to change that. Coming in, I set my goal to get ten goals. I scored three in four and people said to me, 'Are you going to change those goals now?'

"But I said, 'I haven't reached that yet so I'm not going to change those goals'."

Brewster, 19, is also being tracked by Swansea and Bristol City in the Championship plus clubs in Germany should he be made available on a short-term deal.

The Sun says Kop boss Jurgen Klopp will weigh up whether allow Brewster out to get regular football for the second half of the season, or whether he is needed as the club battles on multiple fronts for silverware.

Palace believe he can compete with Jordan Ayew, Christian Benteke and Connor Wickham as an out-and-out striker.

And the Swans and the Robins reckon the teenager would add firepower for a tilt at promotion to the top flight.

The Star says Blades boss Chris Wilder will look to bolster his backline in January, despite the club boasting the joint-best defensive record in the division so far this season, alongside Liverpool and Leicester City.

Rodon made his breakthrough into the Swans' first team last season, and has since earned his place in Wales' youthful senior side, making four international appearances for his country to date.

He boasts an impressive first touch and an ability to play the ball out from the back - a necessity for any defender looking to play under Wilder.

James has been a revelation since joining from Swansea City.

United travel to Carrow Road on Sunday and Farke said, "I'm not surprised by how good James has been.

"I always liked him, but sadly there was no chance for us to get him when Man United called!

"To deliver that quickly on this level says a lot about his character."

Farke also discussed the pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after United's slow start to the campaign.

He added: "To follow Jose Mourinho is not easy for Ole. It's a difficult time but you can see what he wants on the pitch.

"I appreciate the job he's doing because he's doing it in a complicated period with a calm, disciplined, professional way.

"It's a question of time until United are back where they belong.

"The transition period won't last long. They're used to winning games at the club.

"We don't underestimate them."

The youngster got a chance to come off the bench for the under-21s against Slovenia in a friendly.

He got on the scoresheet in the game, showing that he is not out of place at that level. And Howe was delighted for the player.

"It was great to see," Howe told the Daily Echo.

"It's great for everyone connected with this club. Another player getting international recognition at a younger age group I think is a great moment for a lot of people who have done a lot of work with Sam down the years.

"And of course for Sam and his family, a very, very proud moment.

"To represent your country is the pinnacle and great to see him score as well, really nice."
