  • The Welsh player has previously had spells with Swansea and Man United 
  • There was much speculation about James’ next step away from Elland Road 

Fulham have confirmed the signing of Leeds winger Dan James on a season-long loan. 

James, an integral part of the Wales team that qualified for the 2022 World Cup later this year, has joined Fulham for the 2022-23 season after a flurry of rumours about his next club.  

Marco Silva, the Fulham manager, was part of the discussion which brought the talented Welsh winger to London.   

Dan James has joined Fulham on loan for the season from Premier League rivals Leeds United

James told FFCtv: ‘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 vice-chairman 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.

‘Come on Fulham!’

James had been linked to Tottenham before signing for Fulham for the rest of the season

James had been the subject of a flurry of rumours related to a proposed departure from Elland Road, just a year after joining Leeds from Manchester United for £25m.

He was linked to Tottenham but did not end up with Antonio Conte’s side.

Fulham are believed to have offered James first-team football in this unprecedented World Cup season and the 24-year-old has jumped at the opportunity.  

Marco Silva’s side have now signed 11 players to Craven Cottage since they were promoted

Fulham enjoyed a busy transfer deadline day as they also sealed deals for picking up Layvin Kurzawa, Carlos Vinicius and Willian.

It brings Fulham’s total number of signings over the summer to 11, with those four joining Joao Palhinha, Andreas Pereira, Manor Solomon, Kevin Mbabu, Bernd Leno, Shane Duffy and Issa Diop in arriving at Craven Cottage since they were promoted back into the Premier League. 

Fulham have started the season with two wins and two draws from their five matches, with their only defeat so far coming at the hands of Arsenal on Saturday.
