Leeds forward Dan James is the subject of interest from Fulham; Willian is close to completing a permanent move to Craven Cottage; Marco Silva views the Brazilian as a player who can add ‘quality and experience’; Leeds are closing in on Marseille striker Bamba Dieng

Leeds head coach Jesse Marsch says he does not believe Daniel James will leave the club this transfer window.

Fulham are in talks with Leeds over the loan signing of Daniel James.

The deal is not yet done and may be dependent on Bamba Dieng – who is reported to be on the way to Elland Road – completing his move before Thursday’s 11pm deadline.

Wales international James is seeking regular first-team football ahead of the 2022 World Cup which commences in November.

Three other Premier League clubs have shown an interest in the 22-year-old this summer, including Tottenham.

However, James felt that he wouldn’t get the game time he wanted if he were to join Antonio Conte’s side.

Leeds boss Jesse Marsch remained tight-lipped over possible transfer targets when questioned at a press conference held on Deadline Day, but confirmed Elland Road remained a hive of activity.

The Whites are hoping for a successful end to their summer-long hunt for a striker after Rodrigo dislocated his shoulder in the midweek draw against Everton.

On the possibility of further business, Marsch said: “No comment because there is so much going on at Elland Road. [Director of football] Victor [Orta] is active.

“Different discussions have been made about strikers. I’m not sure how it will play out. I haven’t had an update yet.”

Marsch, whose side play at Brentford in the Premier League on Saturday, also refused to comment on reports linking winger James with a move away from Leeds.
