Leeds United fans on Twitter are feeling the pain after the Amazon Prime documentary about their 2018/29 campaign showed just how close they got to signing Daniel James from Swansea in January.

It had been widely reported that the deal fell through at the last minute, but the documentary showed that the winger had in fact done a photo shoot with his new shirt in preparation for the announcement.

In the end, he never ended up joining the Yorkshire club as he remained a Swansea player for the remainder of the season.

His stock rose during that six months, and his good performances led to an £18m move to Manchester United.

The 21-year-old made his Red Devils debut last weekend, and he managed to get himself on the scoresheet.

A good performance on his Premier League debut hurt a number of United supporters, and this snap of him holding a white shirt back in January certainly hasn’t helped matters.

The wounds from earlier in the year still haven’t healed for many members of the fanbase as many expressed how upset they felt when seeing this image.

Other supporters were gutted about the transfer falling through as many claimed that failure to capture the Welshman ultimately cost the club promotion last season.
