Manchester United confirm arrival of Daniel James


Daniel James is officially Manchester United’s first signing of the summer.

James has signed a contract until 2024, with the option to extend for a further year.

The Welsh international joins from Swansea City after the clubs agreed a deal last week.

“This is one of the best days of my life and a challenge I am really looking forward to,” James said.

“The Premier League is the best league in the world and Manchester United is the perfect place for me to continue to develop as a player.

“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.”

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said:

“Daniel is an exciting young winger with lots of skills, vision, exceptional pace and a good work ethic. He had a great season with Swansea City and has all the attributes needed to become a Manchester United player.

“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.”
