Manchester United winger Daniel James has been criticised by Darren Bent, who claims it would be pointless for the “headless” forward to move to Everton as he wouldn’t play their either.
James made a strong start on arriving at Old Trafford, but has fallen down the pecking order under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
And he’s been linked with a January loan move to Everton in search of game time.

But former England international Bent doesn’t see the point in a damning assessment of James.
He told Football Insider: “The only thing about Dan James at times, for me, he’s a little bit headless.
“He’s shown great potential, when he first went to United he played really well, scored a few goals but at times he for me he’s fouled or he shoots sometimes when he should pass it, he’ll pass when he should shoot.
“He’s got great pace and I think he’d be a great addition in anyone’s squad but when we talk about someone coming in and making a real difference and adding a lot of quality to whatever they’ve already got, I’m not quite sure.
“I wouldn’t have him over Rodriguez, no, I wouldn’t have him over Richarlison, so again if he’s going to go and play back up if he’s going to go from Manchester United’s bench to Everton’s bench, then fair enough.
“As far as thinking he’s got more quality than Rodriguez and Richarlison, absolutely not.”
