Dan James is a “Leeds United player” and has made a solid start to life at Elland Road, says former Whites midfielder Carlton Palmer.
James joined from Leeds’ rivals Manchester United on deadline day in a £25m deal after falling down the pecking order at Old Trafford.
During the summer, the Red Devils brought in Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho, while Jesse Lingard also returned from his loan spell with West Ham, leaving James in an unfavourable position.
Are you happy with James' start to the season?
Considering that, it’s no surprise that James decided to leave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side for Leeds, with Palmer content with how things are going so far for the 23-year-old winger.
“I honestly believe he is a Leeds United player,” the ex-England international exclusively told TIF. “I think he’s had a solid start to the season. I wouldn’t say he’s been spectacular, but nor have Leeds United.
“I think as Leeds get better, he’ll get better. But he’s had a solid start to the season and as I said, I think he’ll get better.”
Looking at his time at Manchester United, James is a player who may not bring too many goals to the table. However, one thing that he obviously does offer is pace, something that was clear to see during Euro 2020 when he was with the Wales national team.
