It’s more than two-and-a-half years since the Welsh international was on the cusp of signing for only to see his move to Elland Road collapse right at the very last back in January 2019.

Just over four months later, James joined Leeds’ arch rivals Manchester United in a £15m move from Swansea.

He enjoyed a successful first season at Old Trafford, scoring four times and adding seven assists in 46 appearances.

However, the emergence of Mason saw James slip down the pecking order last term, which won’t be helped by the imminent arrival of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.

Leeds' all-time top Premier goalscorer is Mark Viduka but how many did he score?

Speaking on The Phil Hay Show, journalist Phil Hay revealed that remain interested in the winger, with Man United likely to cash-in on the out of favour 23-year-old.

With that in mind, Palmer exclusively told This is Futbol that won’t give up hope of finally bringing James to Yorkshire:

“Bielsa has been after him for a while, and money talks. I don’t think are going to change their interest for the player, so they’re going to keep pushing and pushing.”
