The Whites missed out the chance to sign the Welsh winger back in January for a reported value of £7million.
Following that, James has attracted a swarm of Premier League giants owing to his exquisite form for Swansea and his country.
Fall out of the signing
After getting his medical done, the 21-year-old was speculated to join the Elland Road club back in January. Later, the Welsh club decided to snub the agreement on the deadline day of the transfer window thus disappointing the Whites.

Exceptional in the international break
James was heaped with praises by the fans following his wonderful display for Wales in the Euro qualifiers. He scored the winning goal against Slovakia.
And for the swans, the winger has been pivotal this season scoring two goals and created four more over 20 championship games.
James is synonymous with both the winger and attacking midfielder positions. His relentless place down the flanks has drawn comparisons with his national mate Gareth Bale.
Furthermore, the Winger’s price might rise up which could hinder the Argentine manager persuading him to the Elland Road.
Leeds are currently third in the championship table trailing Sheffield United by a point.
