Leeds United are reportedly set to sign Jack Harrison from Manchester City permanently, with a deal worth £15 million in line to be completed.
According to a report by Manchester Evening News, Jack Harrison’s time at Manchester City seems to be up. The 24-year-old English winger is set to join Leeds United on a permanent deal in the summer transfer window, with the final transfer fee likely to reach up to £15 million.
Jack Harrison joined Manchester City from New York City FC in January 2018 but is yet to make a single appearance for the Premier League champions. Instead, he has spent much of the last three years or so out on loan, first spending the second half of the 2017/18 season with Middlesbrough before joining Leeds United on a season-long loan deal in each of the last three summers.
It is particularly in the 2020/21 season when the spotlight shone brightly on the 24-year-old, who was simply excellent in a strong campaign for Leeds on return to the Premier League. In 30 outings in the Premier League, Harrison had a tally of eight goals and as many assists, playing a key role in helping them earn a top-half finish.
Now back at Manchester City post the end of his loan spell, Harrison is not expected to stay put at the Etihad Stadium, with Leeds unsurprisingly keen on signing him permanently. And, as per the report by Manchester Evening News, he is set to return to Elland Road for a fourth successive summer, this time on a permanent deal.
The keenness from Leeds is hardly surprising, considering Harrison was practically ever-present on the flanks for the Whites along with Raphinha, whose impressive performances have earned him interest from Liverpool, Manchester United and even Manchester City.
Raphinha, though, is expected to stay put at Elland Road, and so is Harrison, who is about to re-join Leeds, this time on a permanent deal, which would be worth up to £15 million. Manchester City’s stance on Harrison makes sense as well, amid heavy links with Jack Grealish.
As for Harrison, his future appears to be more stable than ever before, as he appears set to leave Manchester City without making a single appearance for the club. A permanent move to Leeds United beckons and it remains to be seen if he can continue his fine run next season.
