The agent of Swansea star Daniel James has spoken about the winger’s failed move to Leeds on transfer deadline day.

It has been reported that the 21-year-old’s move from Swansea to Leeds broke down due to conflict between Swans chairman Huw Jenkins and the Welsh club’s American owners, Steve Kaplan and Jason Levien, over the sale of the highly-rated prospect.

Swansea themselves issued a statement on their official website regarding James’ failed move, but the player’s agent, David Manasseh, told The Telegraph: “Swansea made no attempt to keep the player and at the first sign of money they couldn’t show him the door quickly enough. It is very disappointing but the player is philosophical about it.”

The report has also claimed that James will not sign a new contract if he is offered one by Swansea and the Leeds are likely to be back in for the youngster in the summer.
