Swansea have moved quickly to negotiate with the player for a new deal as the club could lose him for nothing at the end of next season. James has been one of the impressive performers for the Welsh outfit in the championship this season.
His key attributes are his pace, ability to beat opposing defenders and a keen eye for goal. Interest has begun to mount for the player with a number of Premier League clubs said to be interested in his services.
West Ham and Bournemouth have been linked with the player in recent weeks. James was recently speaking about his future with Team Talk were he revealed that contract talks had begun with the club.
