The Wales international who was signed on Wednesday described himself as a ‘versatile and pacey player’ that can play in three different positions.
The Red Devils signed James for £18million in a five-year deal.
He said: “I think being versatile is important.
“A lot of players it’s important you can play different positions, this year I’ve played left, right and I’ve played up top and I have enjoyed all three.
“It’s important not to just play and enjoy one position. To play all three and enjoy all three you have more chance of getting in the team.”
James added: “I would say I’m quite a direct player I don’t like just ball into feet and dribble, I like to get in behind. I would say I’m a pacey player.”
