Manchester United youngster Reece James is open to extending his loan stay at Rotherham United and will hold talks with his parent club before the end of the year.

James, 21, joined the Championship club on an emergency loan deal until January last month and has immediately taken to life at the New York Stadium, starting and completing each of the club's three games since his arrival.

Ashley Young's impressive performances at left-back have eased United's concerns in that position, with Luke Shaw still injured, but James has explained he is waiting to hear what United have planned for him in 2015.

"There's a conversation still to be had between me and Manchester United on what the best situation would be," James was quoted as saying by the South Yorkshire Times.

"If they say it is a case of me being able to make the decision myself, if I am not going to go back there and be involved in the first team, then it is definitely something I would like to do, to stay and be a Rotherham United player."

James was one of a host of youngsters plucked from the under-21 side following manager Louis van Gaal's appointment in the summer. Playing as a wing-back, James impressed on United's pre-season tour of the US and even scored twice in a victory over LA Galaxy.

He featured on the bench in United's first three games of the season but his only start for the club came in the 4-0 thrashing at the hands of MK Dons in the Capital One Cup.

Since making his move to Steve Evans' side, Rotherham have drawn their last three games to aid the club's bid to climb the table.

"It's going well. All the lads are high because of the football we have been playing," James continued. "Everyone's enjoying it. I don't know what the football was like before, but I've been told by some of the other lads that it's a massive difference now."
