Leeds United open talks with Manchester Metropolis over everlasting Jack Harrison deal
Leeds United have started talks with Manchester City this summer about the permanent move from winger Jack Harrison, The Star reports.
The 24-year-old had been on loan with the Whites for the past two seasons, and he’s returned to them for another temporary stint after they secured promotion to the top flight.
Harrison has improved with every season and has been one of the standout players that season with eight goals and eight assists from 35 league games.
The whites have the first chance to get his signature permanent and they have started negotiations with the Cityzens with a £ 15 million deal likely to be closed.
Harrison had a disappointing second half of the previous campaign with the Whites, but the club still made the decision to re-sign him for another loan spell.
He has proven himself with 16 goal contributions in the top division. Only Patrick Bamford did more (16 goals and seven assists).
Therefore, securing his permanent signature is a breeze for them. The £ 15 million price tag could be considered a bargain based on its advertisements during that period.
The Whites are guaranteed a top 10 result this season and the focus next season could be on taking the European spots under Bielsa.
The goal for the summer could be to keep their prized assets like Bamford, Diego Llorente and Raphinha while adding more quality to the ranks.
Leeds appear to have a clear path to landing Harrison’s signature and are hoping Premier League rivals won’t make any significant offers.
