Swansea City winger in action against Stoke City earlier this season.

"He's come through the academy and I think he's enjoying his football here.

"He's part of what we're trying to do and part of the long term picture so I'm enjoying working with him."

Graham Potter on his price tag...

"Yes I would, but I'm not going to name the price here!"

Daniel James on his future at Swansea...

“I haven’t heard anything yet (about a new Swansea City contract), but obviously I’ve just got to see if there is an offer on the table. I haven’t had one yet, but I’m loving my football here.

“I’m enjoying my football at the moment, but to me it’s all just rumours. I see it on the internet all the time and everyone is asking me.

“From my point of view there’s nothing concrete in it at all.

“Whenever anyone asks me, I just laugh. I haven’t heard anything, but I’m just concentrating on here.”

Oli McBurnie on James...

“It’s down to the club to do what they need to do but we want to keep our youngest and best players. DJ is one of the players we want to build our team around.

“The club have done well to tie the rest of the young lads down and hopefully DJ is the next one.

“I’ve told him to stay and now I’m going to lock him in a room and have a word with him. He’s been playing really well and when you have big performances, you’re going to get attention.”
