Daniel James will be a fantastic player for Manchester United if he completes his move from Swansea, says Wales manager Ryan Giggs.
United are on the verge of completing an £18m deal to bring the 21-year-old winger to Old Trafford after he completed a medical on Thursday, Sky Sports News understands.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the United manager, has said he wants to sign players with the right attitude who will “last here for many years”, rather than looking to recruit “ready-made players”.

And it appears, according to his former United team-mate Giggs, James fits right into his plans.
Giggs told Sky Sports News: “He is not only a fantastic player, but a fantastic guy as well.
“He’s very level-headed and yes if it does go through, United have got a very talented and exciting player.”
Asked what advice he had given to James ahead of the move, Giggs added: “Advice doesn’t change. A club like that is interested in you for what you have been doing.
“Don’t try and be anyone else, don’t try and do anything different.”

Meanwhile, Gareth Bale’s future at Real Madrid is still up in the air. He does not appear to be in the plans of head coach Zinedine Zidane but a move away is made difficult for buying clubs due to his high wages.
Giggs, however, says he has seen no sign Bale is distracted by his complicated situation at the Bernabeu.
