Leeds United: Journalist ‘delighted’ Jack Harrison is staying

Leeds United: Journalist 'delighted' Jack Harrison is staying - Leeds United News

Leeds United-supporting journalist James Marshment is ‘delighted’ Jack Harrison stayed at the club in the January transfer window, and believes the next aim should be to tie the winger down to a new contract.

The Lowdown: Harrison stays

Journalist Ben Jacobs claimed that Harrison’s future was ‘one to watch’ going into deadline day, after he was linked with moves to a number of different Premier League sides.

Aston Villa was touted as a potential destination, but the most serious interest seemed to come from Leicester City, however the winger is said to have rejected the move, putting an end to the speculation.

The Latest: Marshment reacts

Taking to Twitter in the wake of the news, Marshment expressed his happiness, and added that he hopes Andrea Radrizzani can tie the playmaker down to a new deal.

The journalist said:Delighted Jack Harrison is staying at #LUFC this window. A player who has contributed some big moments for this club and, even when not at his best, still poses a goal threat. The challenge now, of course, is to tie him down to a new deal. Will have just a year left come summer.”

Raphinha in action for Leeds United

Leeds fans, do you remember how much Raphinha's move to Barcelona was worth?

The Verdict: Fantastic news

Leeds journalist Phil Hay recently confirmed on the Phil Hay show that ‘talks are planned’ for the Whites to extend the 26-year-old’s contract (via Last Word On Sports), and the hope will now be that commits his long-term future to the club.

Hailed as ‘brilliant’ by the media earlier this season, the former Manchester City man has totalled a very respectable two goals and seven assists from 20 appearances in all competitions this season, highlighting the threat he poses on the front foot.

Considering Jesse March’s side are still threatened by relegation, sitting just one point clear of the bottom three, losing a player of the Englishman’s ability would have been a real blow to their chances of avoiding the drop.

The manager has strengthened in midfield and attacking areas this month, signing the likes of Weston McKennie and Georginio Rutter, so Harrison may now get even more opportunities to weigh in with goals and assists, given the improvements made to the squad.
