Wales youngster Daniel James reveals Swansea contract talks are ongoing

Wales hero Daniel James has vowed to focus on his football and not be distracted as Premier League clubs monitor his contract situation at Swansea.
James scored a superb winner as Wales opened their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign with a 1-0 win over Slovakia in Cardiff on Sunday.
James is contracted at Swansea until 2020, with talks over a new deal ongoing amid reports that the player's camp are keen to have a buy-out clause inserted.
"That's still underway," James said when asked about Swansea contract talks.
"It's about concentrating on the football for me. This time last season I wasn't playing first-team football, but it's something that can happen.
"If you get your opportunity you can take it and now it's a case of can I do more?"
Leeds were expected to come back in for James this summer, but they will almost certainly face competition from top-flight clubs following the 21-year-old's international breakthrough.
Swansea's finances remain precarious following relegation from the Premier League last season and the club announced last week they are seeking redundancies among all staff other than players and manager Graham Potter.
Swansea have seen 16 senior players depart since relegation and only five arrive, but James has remained upbeat since his Leeds move collapsed amid some acrimony between the two clubs.
"I got back to Swansea and the fans have been great with me," he said.
"Nothing has changed for me. It was about keep playing football and enjoying it, and that's what I've been doing."
