Many Leeds United fans are keen to see Jack Harrison remain at the club past the summer after the winger spoke to ESPN about his future.
Originally developing as a youth player with Liverpool and Manchester United, Harrison would depart England for a spell in Major League Soccer, signing his first professional contract with New York City.
The Stoke-on-Trent born winger impressed during his time in the United States, doing well enough to secure a move back to his homeland with New York’s partner club Manchester City.
Despite a move to the Etihad stadium, Harrison failed to make an appearance and was loaned out to Middlesbrough in the 2017/2018 season, before signing for Leeds two summers back on a similar loan agreement.
Having now been on loan with Leeds for the past two seasons, Harrison has managed to net himself nine goals in 77 appearances, and continues to play an important part in Marcelo Bielsa’s title contending side.
With Leeds sitting top of the Championship as things stand, Bielsa will undoubtedly be thinking about his squad for next season in which could be a long awaited return to the Premier League.
Harrison’s loan deal with Leeds does include an option to make the move permanent, and that now looks increasingly likely after the 23-year-old’s latest comments.
Responding to the prospect of Harrison arriving at the club, Football League World’s Ben Crump quizzed Whites fans on making the move permanent, asking fans via Facebook group Leeds United Football Club: “Jack Harrison will reportedly cost £8m this summer, is this a must signing for us?” – and below are just some of the responses gained to the question.
