Leeds: Graham Smyth drops Jack Harrison transfer claim

Leeds: Graham Smyth drops Jack Harrison transfer claim -Leeds United News

Leeds United have yet to receive a formal offer for Jack Harrison, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post‘s chief football writer Graham Smyth. 

The lowdown

In separate reports, The Telegraph have claimed that both Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United are interested in signing the 26-year-old.

So far this summer, Leeds have lost Kalvin Phillips to Manchester City in a £45m move and received offers for the £55m-rated Raphinha.

Harrison , who has two years left to run on his £60,000-per-week contract, is valued at £16.2m by Transfermarkt.

The latest

Smyth has said that Leeds have held exploratory dialogue with interested parties for the ex-Man City winger, although no bids have materialised thus far. The reporter added that transfer isn’t off the table, but the Whites certainly aren’t planning to offload him.

Smyth told a Leeds Q&A for the Yorkshire Evening Post: “There was interest in Jack Harrison and a conversation or two but as far as we’re aware no concrete bids. Every player has a price, of course, but Leeds are more than happy to keep Harrison for next season.”

The verdict

It’s worth considering what may represent a good price for Harrison. First and foremost, he’s a good age and his value is protected by his contract status.

In terms of his level, he has been directly involved in 25 goals in two top-flight seasons since Leeds returned to the Premier League, which must be considered a strong return. He has scored 28 goals and provided 22 assists for the Whites overall.

Leeds fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

Everton manager Frank Lampard regards the 26-year-old as ‘one of the best wingers‘ in the Premier League, while Alan Shearer has called him ‘absolutely fantastic’. Also, it’s telling that a Champions League club in Spurs are reportedly interested in the winger.

If fellow 26-year-old Phillips cost £45m, then Harrison shouldn’t be too far behind in terms of any prospective transfer fee.
