Leeds United have ‘no plans’ to sell winger Jack Harrison to Newcastle United, reliable journalist Phil Hay has confirmed.
The Lowdown: Harrison linked with exit
The Whites have lost key duo Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha this summer, with the pair joining Manchester City and Barcelona, respectively.
Harrison is another influential figure who has been linked with a move away from Elland Road, however, with Newcastle United eyeing up an official offer.
The Englishman’s current Leeds deal runs out in 2024, and while no new contract is close to being agreed yet, Hay has now weighed in on the rumours with a pretty encouraging update.
The Latest: Hay delivers significant update
“No plans at Leeds United to sell Jack Harrison. Valuation would be £35m+ and Newcastle are a long way off that. Assuming he’s here beyond the end of the window, contract will need attention.”
The Verdict: Keep hold of him, Whites
Harrison may not always have been the first name on Leeds’ team sheet but he has been an important figure throughout a memorable period in the club’s history, being described as a ‘brilliant’ player by Noel Whelan.
Kurzawa at Leeds?
Yes, just what we need!
No, look elsewhere!
Should Harrison depart because Newcastle meet their valuation, Leeds would at least earn a huge sum of money that could be spent on new arrivals, rather than losing him on the cheap. Keeping hold of him takes precedence, though, given his quality and consistency for the club.
