Fulham confirm season-long loan transfer from Leeds star Dan James on busy day for Marco Silva’s side

FULHAM have completed the loan signing of Leeds United forward Dan James after failing in a bid for Ben Brereton Diaz.

Blackburn Rovers have rejected the Premier League club’s offer to sign the Chile international as they hold out for around £15million.

The Cottagers, who saw Justin Kluivert’s move from Roma collapse over a work permit have moved in the nick of time to complete a deal for James.

The former Manchester United winger was also a target for Tottenham.

The interest from Antonio Conte’s side came as Spurs want to add another attacking option to their squad ahead of the hectic schedule this autumn.

Games will now be coming thick and fast as the season goes into overdrive to accommodate the winter World Cup in Qatar.

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag referred to this as part of the reasoning behind their signing of Antony.

And despite not having European football, Fulham will also feel the pressure of the congested fixture list.

With the deal for Kluivert collapsing and a move for Brereton Diaz failing, James appears to be a Premier League proven player who can come in as a quick fix.

The Cottagers were busy on transfer deadline day as Marco Silva gets his squad ready for a hectic few months.


They also brought in former Chelsea and Arsenal star Willian after the Brazilian had his Corinthians contract terminated.

PSG full-back Layvin Kurzawa and former Tottenham striker Carlos Vinicius have all moved to the Prem new-boys.
