Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, claims Daniel James is destined to be a Red Devils star after the Wales winger completed his move from Swansea City.

The 21-year-old has become Solskjaer’s first signing as United manager – in a deal that could be worth up to £22million in add-ons.

James has signed a five-year contract with the option of a further year.

And Solskjaer is convinced he has secured a star of the future.

“Daniel is an exciting young winger with lots of skills, vision, exceptional pace and a good work ethic,” said the Norwegian

“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.”

James, whose father died suddenly while his move was being negotiated, added: “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.”
