Player to Watch: Daniel James

The Welsh international winger has been one of the top performers for Leeds this season, scoring 13 goals in 36 matches, which is the second-best mark in the team. He added six assists to his record as well.

James received his first big opportunity at the highest level of English football by playing at Swansea, which earned him a big-money move to Manchester United.

However, he didn't find his place there and eventually was sold to Leeds. James was capped by Wales national team 51 times scoring seven goals.
