So the deal for Daniel James is still dragging on. Will Swansea let him go or what?

Leeds, per Phil Hay’s reporting, have gone all-in on James and it’s getting close to the wire. James is quality, but it sounds as if Swansea are holding out for more money. Will Swansea cave? Or will Leeds finally just throw some extra money at them and get the player they want? This seems as if Leeds have thrown all of their eggs into one basket, and that’s not a great position to be in. If anyone can get this collection of U23s and ragtag players into the Prem, it’s Marcelo Bielsa, but it’s gonna be harder without some reinforcements. Let’s hope this gets done.
