Official: Daniel James has joined Manchester United from Swansea
The 21-year-old Wales star arrives at Old Trafford after drawing attention to some explosive performances at the Swan Championship
Manchester United have completed the signing of Swansea City striker Daniel James in a £15m ($19m) deal.


It is understood that the 21-year-old signed a five-year contract with the giants of Old Trafford and became the first addition of Ole
 Gunnar Solskjaer since his arrival as coach in December 2018.

Pacey lit the Championship in 2018-19, scoring five goals and helping 10 more in 38 appearances in all competitions.

As a result of his excellent form, he also received his first two cards for Wales by the great Ryan Giggs, scoring in his second match
 against Slovakia in March.

Man United issued an official statement via the club's website on Friday afternoon, which reads: "Manchester United are pleased to announce
that it has agreed in principle to Swansea City and Daniel James for transfer to the club .

"Daniel has successfully completed a medical examination at the Aon Training Complex. More details will be provided as soon as the window of
 international transfers opens next week."
Native to Beverley in Yorkshire, James came through the youth system of the nearby town of Hull before being snatched by Swansea for a nominal
 compensation rate of £72,000 in 2014.

He came close to joining Leeds United during the January transfer window, and despite conducting interviews with Elland Road's television
 channel, an agreement can not be closed before the deadline.


He will now join Solskjaer and the United team for the first time on July 1, when players will train before the season, before the summer tour in
Australia and Asia.
