James and Fer staying with Swans

1st February 2019

Swansea City can confirm that Daniel James will not be joining Leeds United, while skipper Leroy Fer will also be staying at the club.

James travelled to Elland Road today to discuss a loan move with a view to a permanent transfer on enhanced terms should the Championship leaders secure promotion to the Premier League.

However, the clubs could not agree suitable terms and the 21-year-old will return to Swansea.

Wales international James will be welcomed back into the squad with immediate effect with the goal of continuing his rich vein of form.

Skipper Fer was linked with a deadline day move to Lille and Aston Villa, but has decided to remain with the Swans to give manager Graham Potter a double boost for the run-in.
