A technically gifted and versatile attacking player, James has also featured regularly for England at youth international level.
He was afforded his senior City debut in September 2021, coming on as a substitute in our Carabao Cup win over Wycombe Wanderers.
He has since featured five times as a substitute, twice in the Premier League, twice in the FA Cup and once in the Champions League.
His 28 appearances for the EDS in 2021/22 earned him the Players' Player of the Year trophy.
