West Brom are keen to sign Manchester United winger Daniel James on loan this January.

New Baggies boss Sam Allardyce has made an enquiry for the Welsh international ahead of the upcoming transfer window, according to the Daily Star.

They can expect a fair amount of competition for James, who also has former admirers Leeds, Brighton and Burnley interested in a short-term loan.

Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa has long been a fan of the pacey Welshman, having all but signed him for Championship side Swansea in January 2019, all for the deal to fall through in the final moments of the window.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still yet to make a call on James’ status for the remainder of the season and is unsure if he will be needed to help United make a push at the top of the Premier League. 

The 23-year-old is only getting limited minutes at Old Trafford and Solskjaer could decide that more regular first-team football could be beneficial. 

The £15million signing has played only five times in the Premier League this season, scoring once in their recent 6-2 thumping of Bielsa’s Leeds.

Former United captain Roy Keane had plenty of praise for James and Solskjaer, for putting his faith into the winger, after he endured a tough time following his move.

‘He’s had a tough time. He’s had a tough time since he’s gone to United. He started off his career at United really well, but had a difficult few months,’ Keane told Sky Sports 

‘Again, credit to Ole – he probably thought it was gonna be his kind of game and it’s gonna be open. Going to United was a big move for him.

‘Look at his face, it meant a lot to the kid and I’m delighted for him. Playing for Man United is not as easy as everyone thinks, there’s a lot of pressure.’
