- It seems unlikely that James will move unless Leeds can make some progress
Tottenham are unlikely to strike a deal on the deadline to sign Dan James, with the Leeds winger now reportedly nearing a transfer to Fulham.
Antonio Conte’s side had been linked to a shock move that would have put the Welshman on loan with an option to buy next summer.
However, their pursuit of the 24-year-old currently seems to have hit a wall.

However, Marco Silva and Fulham could offer James the first-team football he desires
However, Sky Sports has now reported that James may be on his way to Fulham for the season.
James hopes to regularly play in the first team for the 2022 World Cup, which starts in November.
It is said that James was ‘unsure’ if he could get this if he joined Tottenham – where there is plenty of competition for places.
Welsh winger James made 35 appearances for Leeds last year after moving from Manchester United for £30million, a record transfer fee for the Yorkshire side.
The 24-year-old was part of the Wales national team that qualified for the World Cup this year, returning to the tournament for the first time in over 60 years.

Due to his pace and work pace, James is highly sought after by many Premier League clubs.
Everton would also be on the hunt for James to replace Anthony Gordon.
However, the Toffees star will remain at Goodison Park after Chelsea were unable to get him in a deal worth up to £60million.
Tottenham have had a busy summer but could have a quiet deadline.
Conte’s side have made seven signings to date, including Richarlison, Yves Bissouma and Ivan Perisic.
They remain unbeaten after their first five games and are in third place – four points behind leader Arsenal.
