Daniel James has today been unveiled as a Manchester United player after an agreement was made between us and Swansea last week.

The young winger spoke of his delight at signing with United to the club’s official website.

This is one of the best days of my life and a challenge I am really looking forward to. The Premier League is the best league in the world and Manchester United is the perfect place for me to continue to develop as a player.

This is an incredibly proud moment for me and my family; however, it is tinged with sadness that my father isn’t able to share this experience with us. I am looking forward to working with Ole, meeting the team and getting started.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer discussed what attracted him to sign the 21-year-old Welshman.

Daniel is an exciting young winger with lots of skills, vision, exceptional pace and a good work ethic. He had a great season with Swansea City and has all the attributes needed to become a Manchester United player.

We are delighted he has signed with our club and we are all looking forward to working with him. This is the perfect environment for Daniel to continue his development.
