‘Better options out there’, ‘Really tough to say’ – Player’s potential Leeds return: Opinion



Jack Harrison was the hero for Leeds United at the weekend, with the winger scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday.

Leeds are starting to see something like the 22-year-old’s best at the minute, with Harrison’s strike against Wednesday his fourth goal of the campaign.

And, the Manchester City loanee was discussing his future in the wake of that goal, not fully closing the door on an Elland Road return when talking to BBC Radio Leeds.

So, with Leeds on the cusp of promotion, should they be looking to bring Harrison back next season?

We discuss…

Chris Gallagher  

“Not if they win promotion.

“Harrison is a good player at this level, as he proved on Saturday, and has played a big part in Leeds’ promotion push.

“However, they will need that extra bit of quality if they go up and I don’t think he would score enough or make enough goals in the top-flight.

“He might be a decent option for the squad but overall it would be an underwhelming addition for a Premier League side. If they remain in the Championship though, it’s a no-brainer – sign him up.”

Alfie Burns

“Harrison has blown hot and cold this season for the Whites.

“We have seen the quality he possesses, but it hasn’t been often enough and if the club are promoted, you’ve got to say they will need more quality on the flanks.

“Having said that, Harrison will no doubt have benefitted from a full year in and around Leeds’ first-team, and should he return, we might see him thrive.

“It’s really tough to say, though, and the club’s supporters will have to trust whatever route the board decide to take.”

Jacob Potter

“I think there are better options out there.

“Harrison hasn’t been consistent enough for my liking and I don’t think he’d be good enough to make the step up to the Premier League.

“Bielsa’s summer budget would be spent better on a more recognised option to play in the top-flight, providing that Leeds win promotion this season.”
