James has won two caps for the Red Dragons under Giggs this year since switching his iternational allegiance from England.

The Premier League side also announced that they will release more details of the signing once the worldwide transfer window opens next week.

"As a manager you want all your players to be playing to a higher level as they can and their ability deserves", the United legend added.

The Mail also explains that the Old Trafford club "stepped up" their interest in James when it became increasingly clear than Borussia Dortmund starlet Jadon Sancho was a step too far.

Negotiations took a backseat while James mourned the sudden death of his father but talks have been rekindled in recent days and it looks like United are now on the verge of completing their first summer signing.
