Manchester United have agreed a deal 'in principle' to sign Daniel James from Swansea.

The 21-year-old Wales winger has completed a medical at United's training complex at Carrington and the move will be rubber-stamped when FIFA’s international transfer window opens next week.

It's believed the transfer could be worth up to 18-million pounds to Swansea and James will become Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's first signing since his appointed as United manager on a permanent basis.

Wales manager and United legend Ryan Giggs thinks his club have landed a 'fantastic player'.

"Manchester United will get a fantastic player. It's a good move for Dan and a good deal for Swansea."

James was given permission to leave the Wales training camp to undergo his medical and agree personal terms with the Red Devils and Giggs has no hesitation in using the youngster for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifier against Croatia tomorrow.

“He’s assured me that he’s ready to play but we’ll have to see how we go.

“You have to be flexible because you don’t want things weighing on players’ minds, so if you can get it sorted it’s better for us and for the player as well.

"He's a level-headed lad, he's been fine in training and he's OK for the Croatia game."
