Former Swansea player Forbes has backed James to continue to excite United supporters.

The 40-year-old told LoveSport Radio: "If you've got a team like Manchester United prepared to pay that amount of money for a young talent, then they've obviously seen something in Daniel James.

"They feel he is only going to get better in the future and I have to agree.

"I've seen him play for Swansea and he was the one who, when he got the ball, the mad Swans fans were off their seats expecting something exciting to happen, and nine out of ten times it did.

"When you have a player that young with the pace he has, he's always going to be a threat and the performances he's put in for Man Utd and Wales speak volumes about where this player can go.

"The speed with which he moves at is difficult for defenders to defend against.

"You'll have managers saying 'show him onto his left', but defenders know he's able to use that left foot!

"If you've got a player who's playing wide and chipping in with goals that's definitely a force to be reckoned with in any league.

"Playing in the Premier League with the players around him and the style of play around him, some would say it's a touch slower but more clinical, he'll have quality players around him who can pick him out and find his runs.

"That's a recipe for success and he'll have a big impact on Man United's season as well."

The club have appointed the first ever director as they look to reshape their footballing structure.

Britton has already been working with the club as an advisor since he retired.

Now the 36-year-old will take on an even more important role with Swansea.

"I've been extremely impressed with his knowledge, intelligence and passion for the game and the club," Swansea chairman Trevor Birch told the club's official website.

"Swansea already seen the benefits of his input with the footballing appointments we have made so far.

"Having been a former player here for so long - and respected so highly by the fans, staff and players - it made perfect sense to get him involved, initially as an advisor.

"Since then he and I have worked really well together, and he has struck up a great working relationship with Steve."

The summer signing from Swansea, 21, has scored three goals in four games for United.

And he's clearly a loved character in his national team.

Defender Joe Rodon said: "DJ hasn't got a bad bone in his body.

"He's a brilliant kid, a close friend and is in great form.

"United are a massive club and for him to go there and do that is a credit to him. Hopefully he can continue to perform at a high level.

"DJ's a very talented and quick player growing up with him in the academy, you didn't want to go one-to-one against him."

And midfielder Tom Lawrence added: "As a youngster you've got to work hard and never get too ahead of yourself, then your opportunities will come.

"Dan has a great background so he'll be fine. I had no doubts that when he got that move, he'd shine at United.

"He's a great lad who is willing to learn."

Giggs says the former Swansea City winger has noticeably improved over the past six months.

"From a standing start, he is quick and he'll beat anyone," said Giggs.

It's just that, like any other young winger, the finishing touches, that final ball and scoring more goals, he will get better at.

Ole asked me about him and I just told him that he's a player with plenty of potential, obviously really quick and a great lad. Someone you want in the dressing room, a great character.

Especially for the money, it was a no-brainer really because he is a talent. Since Christmas, he's just got better and better.

I watched him a lot for Swansea last year and he ripped nearly every full-back in that division apart.

He's just got better and better over the last six or seven months."

<![CDATA[SNAPPED! How close Man Utd winger James came to joining Leeds]]> <p>It's been revealed how close Manchester United winger Daniel James came to joining Leeds United.</p><p>The 21-year-old was on the verge of swapping Swansea City for Yorkshire in January for a 10million move.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/snapped-how-close-man-utd-winger-james-came-to-joining-leeds-4293158?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BSwansea%2BCity'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> It's been revealed how close Manchester United winger Daniel James came to joining Leeds United.

The 21-year-old was on the verge of swapping Swansea City for Yorkshire in January for a 10million move.

The Sun says James then travelled to Elland Road where he posed for club photos, started to sign parts of his new contract and discussed potential properties to live within the Leeds area.

He even agreed to wear the No 21 shirt with replicas printed up by club officials.

Everything was in place but over the course of the night, Swansea chiefs started to ignore text messages and phone calls.

And come the 11pm deadline it was not finalised due to political problems at Swansea and a split in their boardroom over whether or not to sell their best player to a Championship rival.

<![CDATA[Wales legend Southall: Man Utd fans will love James]]> <p>Wales legend Neville Southall says Daniel James can thrive at Manchester United.</p><p>The 21-year-old winger was signed by the Red Devils from Swansea this summer.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/wales-legend-southall-man-utd-fans-will-love-james-4292244?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BSwansea%2BCity'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Wales legend Neville Southall says Daniel James can thrive at Manchester United.

The 21-year-old winger was signed by the Red Devils from Swansea this summer.

And Southall thinks James' fearless nature will serve him well at Old Trafford.

"He's [Daniel James] playing like a kid with no fear and if he can carry it on he'll be fantastic," Southall told vouchercodes.co.uk

"At the moment he is sort of nave, but he's gone in and he's done what he needed to do.

"I think if he can carry on playing with freedom like Ryan [Giggs] did, then I think he'll be great. It is really good that he has a manager like Ryan at Wales. I think he'll be the type of player that Old Trafford give a standing ovation to because he's positive and he's quick."

"It's going to be interesting with Wales, as he becomes more prominent and with Gareth [Bale] being 30-odd, the roles might reverse.

"At the moment he is one among many and once you become like Ryan [Giggs] or Gareth [Bale], you have to deal with the other stuff football throws at you and it's whether he will be up to the challenge. If he can become the main man and deal with everything thrown at him then that will be great for Wales and great for Manchester United and to be fair it would be great for football."
