Burnley Interested In Taking Daniel James On Loan
Manchester United star Daniel James is currently being linked with a number of Premier League teams ahead of the January transfer window, with Burnley, Brighton Hove Albion, West Bromwich Albion and Leeds United all interested in taking the midfielder on loan.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has yet to decide whether the former Swansea City and Wales International playmaker will be needed during the second half of the season. But with James’ first-team opportunities limited at the moment, the Norwegian may feel it makes sense to let him have regular action elsewhere.
Though he started and scored in the recent 6-2 thumping of Leeds, the £15million signing from Swansea City had played only four times in the Premier League this term heading into the weekend. Roy Keane heaped praise on Solskjaer for starting James in the win over Leeds United, while pointing out how relieved the latter seemed when he broke his goalscoring duck at Old Trafford.
Keane told Sky Sports viewers, “He’s had a tough time. He’s had a tough time since he’s gone to Manchester United, he started off really well at Old Trafford, but had a difficult few months. Again, credit to Ole, he probably thought it was gonna be his kind of game and it’s gonna be open. Going to United was a big move for him and it meant a lot to the kid and I’m delighted for him. Playing for Manchester United is not as easy as everyone thinks, there’s a lot of pressure.”
