Fulham continue deadline day business with loan swoop for winger

D

an James has joined Fulham on a season-long loan to finish what was a hectic deadline day for the newly-promoted side.

Left-back Layvin Kurzawa has also arrived on loan, with Willian sealing a move to Fulham on a free transfer and former Tottenham forward Carlos Vinicius signed for £5m.

Now James has been added to that list, joining from Leeds in a move that was confirmed 45 minutes after the window shut.

Tottenham were linked with the Welsh winger and held talks with Leeds over a possible loan deal, but the 24-year-old will spend the rest of the season at Fulham.

Speaking to FFCtv, James said: “I’m looking forward to it!

“I’ve spoken to the Gaffer and it feels like a great fit for me, and I can’t wait to get started.”

Fulham director Tony Khan said: “I’m thrilled to welcome Dan James to Fulham. He’s an exciting talent, and he’s gained tremendous playing experience at a young age, both domestically and internationally.

“Dan is very keen to play for Marco here at Fulham, and we’re delighted to have him join the squad as we work to continue the great momentum that the team has started this season with.”

The club moved fast to wrap up the attacker after failing to land key target Justin Kluivert from Roma.

An £11million deal had been agreed between all parties, only for it to collapse when a work permit was denied.
