    Yes. TeamTalk says:
    "The Wales winger – so close to joining Leeds in the January window was last week strongly linked with a summer switch to Manchester United, with the Red Devils said to be pushing the player and his agent hard for an answer.
    But Potter has told James he wants him to follow him to the Amex Stadium, telling the player his first-team prospects and development in the game would be far better suited by a move there.
    The 21-year-old winger, who has just a year left on his contract, is valued at around £10m by Swansea and has also been linked with Liverpool, Bournemouth and Manchester City."

      We can compete with that bunch of player led twats on this one, if we get Potter

      We probably won’t be able to compete with Bournemouth though

      I think @Bold Seagull means opportunities in the Premier League specifically, but I could be wrong. i.e. That clubs have too quickly gotten rid of him in the Prem (Toon - definitely, Norwich - maybe, Us - maybe).
      Yes agree, I don't really know what his choices were pre-Newcastle. There is a perception that because of the Norwich job specifically, he is a negative manager and that has stuck with him. That notion is reinforced by the back end of this season of course, but isn't backed up by his time at Newcastle, or any of his seasons in the Championship with 3 other clubs, or our first season in the top flight.

      Weirdly, especially at home, I don't think we have been going out negative as such, just incredibly poor with players crippled by lack of confidence. We had no one to step in when key players were out injured, and we were left floundering. The conclusion our lack of shots was just through tactics leaves me slightly baffled when I could see us getting into great positions with plenty of players in support.

      That perception is stuck with him now though, many think justified, many like myself feel it has been much more down to confidence and performance than tactics.

      I hope he gets another chance in the top flight, and probably have little doubt he will. Just hope we're not waving at him travelling in the opposite direction.

      SSN reporting that Potter is undecided on the move As he just moved his fam to Swansea.
      That's just weird. If Swansea were supporting the team financially, I'd understand - he's only just started a project there. But if they're not backing him (and reports of selling all PL players and replacing them with all under 23s makes it sound like they're not), what's the point? Doesn't he have any ambition (and to be clear, that's not a dig at Swansea, but the lack of backing they're giving him)?
      Thank you Chris, you're a legend.

      We don't know if Potter is coming.

      How would they be privy to such conversation ?

      Take it with a pinch of salt.

      Probably down to the fact that James is a Liverpool fan.

      Don't worry, I do. It seems strange to me that a manager would be talking about bringing a player with him before even having formal discussions about his own move. Just letting people know what has been reported, and asking whether this is a usually-reliable source or not.

      We don't even know if Potter is a smokescreen. We all sometimes forget TB is a poker player.

      "Yes, we've got a brilliant manager lined up, in the bag, but let us know what your terms might be Mr "X" and we can have a think about it. Make your terms attractive enough and we'll give it some serious thought." - all whilst Mr "X" is the manager we wanted all along....

      Very few are reliable. Andy Naylor gets most things right. Sky Sports can be chequered but are pretty good. Other than that I just check the local rag of any place that is relevant. Everything else I just ignore as speculation- even if it turns out to be right. As they say, a clock that has stopped is still right twice a day.

      I don't believe anyone on here knew of our interest in Potter. But the short odds were noticed and suddenly a few folk are ITK.
