Dan James has been a “bright spark” for Leeds United this season, says former Whites midfielder David Norris.
James joined Leeds from rivals Manchester United at the end of the summer transfer window and has so far made eight league appearances for his new side.
The Wales international, however, is yet to score a goal under Marcelo Bielsa as he continues to adapt to life at Elland Road following that £25m move from the Red Devils.
Has James impressed you?
Even so, Norris feels he has shone for Leeds since joining the Yorkshire club. On the 24-year-old winger, Norris told TIF:
“From the games I’ve seen, you know, I actually like him. I think at times he has been a bright spark in a difficult season and a bit of a struggling team, so it’s hard when you’re an attacking player.
“If he joins Leeds last season, it could be totally different, a lot different for him, but I actually think he’s been a bright spark in that team.”
Bielsa will now be hoping for James to add some goals to his game to take some pressure off Raphinha.
The Brazilian has really been carrying the team in Patrick Bamford’s absence, scoring five times in 10 Premier League outings, so Leeds really could do with James and the other attackers stepping up in front of goal.
