Leeds winger Dan James is on the verge of joining Fulham on a season-long loan deal.

The 24-year-old had interest from Tottenham and Everton but is now set to move to Craven Cottage.

With Leeds signing Marseille forward Bamba Dieng, who was also a target for Fulham, James has been given the all clear to join up with Marco Silva’s men.

The Wales international will now travel to west London to complete a medical and sign a year-long deal.


Fulham 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.

James is now due to be announced, along with deals for Carlos Vinicius from PSV Eindhoven, free agent Willian and Paris Saint-Germain defender Layvin Kurzawa, on a busy transfer deadline day.
