Bruno Fernandes has sent his best wishes to Dan James after his transfer to Leeds United.

James’ move to Leeds was confirmed by the club on deadline day.

United signed James in 2019 from Swansea City, months after a proposed move to Leeds fell through.

Now former teammate Bruno Fernandes has wished James all the best.

Raw potential

James, 23, leaves Manchester United with the club in a better position than when he signed.

The winger has not lost a single Premier League match he has played in since the opening day defeat to Crystal Palace last season.

 

James was a player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer trusted, but the manager could not offer him regular first team football.

With Marcus Rashford set to return from injury and Jadon Sancho picking up fitness, James was set for another year in and out of the side.

James ended his United career with 74 matches played and nine goals.

Three of those goals came in his opening three games for the club, a pace he could not sustain.

James leaves United with no ill feeling despite joining one of the club’s historic rivals.

That says everything about the high regard felt for James as an individual.
