Tottenham plan fresh Dan James talks with Leeds but deadline day deal unlikely

Tottenham target Dan James is expected to leave Leeds before the deadline but a move to north London is considered unlikely.

Spurs have held talks over signing James as a replacement for Bryan Gil, who is wanted on loan by Valencia, but are not thought to be the front-runners for his signature at this stage - although further talks are expected today.

The 24-year-old Wales winger was happy to remain at Elland Road but is not thought to be a major part of head coach Jesse Marsch's plans and his representatives are now exploring a move before tonight's deadline.

James has also been linked with Fulham and Everton, although the Toffees' interest may have cooled after Chelsea ended their pursuit of Anthony Gordon.

Leeds are understood to want a permanent deal rather than a loan, which would suit Spurs, who will only allow Gil to return to Spain if they can sign a replacement.
