Leeds: Tim Thornton sends Jack Harrison contract message

Leeds: Tim Thornton sends Jack Harrison contract message -Follow up

Leeds United must look to tie Jack Harrison down to a new contract amid rumours of his Whites exit, says Sky Sports journalist Tim Thornton.

The Lowdown: Harrison’s future up in the air

The 25-year-old continues to be an important figure for Leeds, with one goal and three assists coming his way in the Premier League so far this season.

There were plenty of rumours linking Harrison with a move away from Elland Road during the summer, however, and Newcastle United appeared to be paying particularly close attention to him.

The winger’s future is still up in the air, with his current Leeds deal expiring in 2024 and a new contract not yet sorted.

The Latest: Journalist talks up new deal

Speaking to Give Me Sport, Sky reporter Thornton claims that the Whites retaining Harrison’s services makes sense for everyone:

“I think he’s improved a lot since he’s been at Leeds, so I don’t think there’s any reason from his point of view to move anywhere else at the moment.

“From a Leeds perspective, the fact that he is a player that’s been sought-after, it makes sense to tie him down on a longer deal.”

The Verdict: Get it done Radz

Harrison has been a great servant for Leeds, initially thriving on loan and now permanently, and his performances warrant a new deal at Elland Road.

He is now a proven Premier League player, scoring 17 times and registering 12 assists in the competition, while LUFC YouTuber Conor McGilligan has described him as a ‘fantastic’ player.

At 25, Harrison’s peak years should still be ahead of him, so offering him a new deal beyond 2024 would be a wise decision from Andrea Radrizzani and Victor Orta, staving off the threat from Newcastle in the process.
