Coach Jupp Heynckes sent on winter signing Sandro Wagner for his second Bayern debut - he made four Bundesliga appearances for the senior side in the 2007-08 season - but James stole the limelight with his ideal free kick into the top left corner. The 34-year-old's current one-year deal expires this summer and he has said he is open to a move to MLS, China, Qatar or Dubai when his time at the German champions comes to an end.
"We are relaxed. The only club that can say no - and would do so - if a player attracted interest is Bayern Munich", Voller said in an interview with Die Welt.
"It's always nice to score", he added after his first league goal of the season.
It was Leverkusen's first defeat at home this season, and ended a 12-game unbeaten run. He made the last of four senior appearances for Bayern when he came off the bench for Franck Ribery in the closing seconds of the 1-1 draw with Hamburg on 2 September, 2007.

Dominik Kohr's 18th minute header narrowly missed the target but was their best chance before Bayern gradually took control. The 30-year-old Germany striker joined from Hoffenheim.
However Rodriguez, on loan from Real Madrid, showed his class by coolly slotting home a free kick on the edge of the area after being fouled just outside the box.
Ribery then made sure of the three points on 59 minutes in emphatic style.
