Leeds United may reportedly consider the sale of Dan James on two conditions as Tottenham Hotspur register an interest in his services.

According to Sun journalist Alan Nixon, Leeds could contemplate cashing in if they receive a bid that matches their valuation of the player.

It also depends on whether or not they can sign a replacement this summer with little over a week to go in the window.

Via Twitter, he wrote, “Depends on size of offer and whether they have a player coming in to improve squad.”

Nixon himself reported that Spurs were considering making a move for him this summer.

Makes sense

If Leeds can make close to the £25million [Sky Sports] they paid to sign James from Manchester United last summer, then they should consider selling him, by all means.

Dan James has not worked out under Marcelo Bielsa or Jesse Marsch and seems to offer nothing to this side apart from his work rate.

The window is closing soon and if Leeds feel that they can sign a replacement quickly, then they must cash in on him and then bring in another wide attacker who can also play as a striker.

This will sort out two different positions and having versatile players in the squad will always be beneficial for the manager.

It remains to be seen what Marsch makes of Spurs’ interest and whether or not he’ll allow the Welshman to leave.

For James, he is unlikely to get regular game time in London so he may have second thoughts over leaving Elland Road so late in the window.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites could make a final push for an international striker after he was left out of his side’s matchday squad over the weekend.
