Manchester United have finalised the signing of Daniel James from Swansea City on a five-year contract.
Negotiations between the two sides had been ongoing for weeks, but United have finally been able to officially conclude the deal to make James the first senior signing of the summer.
United confirmed the news on their official website, writing: “
“James signs on a five-year contract, with an option to extend for a further year.”
On the signing, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer added: “
“We are delighted he has signed with our club and we are all looking forward to working with him. This is the perfect environment for Daniel to continue his development.”
James himself said:
“This is an incredibly proud moment for me and my family, however, it is tinged with sadness that my father isn’t able to share this experience with us. I am looking forward to working with Ole, meeting the team and getting started.”
There is no official confirmation of the fee involved, but previous reports have suggested the two teams agreed on a fee of £15m to take James to Old Trafford.
