Leeds United were left feeling surprised after reports concerning attacker Jack Harrison emerged.
Is £8m a bargain for Jack Harrison?
According to The Athletic, the Manchester City loanee will be available to sign on a permanent deal next summer for a fee believed to be just £8m.
The report also revealed what the fee would be if the Whites wanted to sign young ‘keeper Illan Meslier on a permanent deal (£4m).
Harrison has been a key player for Marcelo Bielsa this season, having scored five goals and assisted a further six as the Yorkshire outfit sit top of the Championship (via Transfermarkt)
On the other hand, Meslier announced himself to the fans for the first time on Monday evening as he put in a ‘strong’ performance in the FA Cup defeat away to Arsenal.
Fans were thrilled with the news that Harrison could be signed for a fee south of £10m as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
Deffo take Harrison for that imo

Spot on mate. A no brainer at that price given his progress.

Manchester Messi for £8m……should be biting their hand off up to the elbow.

I find £8m for Harrison a bit unbelievable, considering City said we could have him end of last season for £20m yet he’s grown better as a player this season?!
