James will be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first signing of the summer transfer window following his full-time appointment in March.

The promising talent has had just one full season in the Championship, but his international colleague Joe Allen believes his teammate is ready for top flight action.

"I can only give you my opinion, I think he is ready for it," the ex-Liverpool midfielder said about James.

"He is a level-headed lad who has huge ability and I am sure he wants to show it at the highest level he can. I am confident he can do that."

Allen added: "He has had a great season. I remember even at the start of the year that was all the info I was getting from Swansea was that he had come on brilliantly.

"You go back to the start of the season and I don't think it wasn't that obvious.

"I think from the Welsh point of view, a lot of the lads knew him of course and knew the talent he has, but second half of the season he has been on fire there."

James played 33 games in the Championship for Swansea last season, though he rose to prominence in the FA Cup after scoring a spectacular solo goal.

He showed off his blistering speed as he scored a remarkable goal.
