The Lowdown: January timeframe
The Whites lost two star players over the summer in Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha and were also at risk of losing Harrison.
Newcastle United showed plenty of interest in the winger, with Leeds now wanting to extend Harrison’s deal after keeping hold of his services.
The Latest: Contract update
FI provided an update from a ‘well-placed source’ regarding Harrison’s future.
They revealed that Leeds are ready to offer the player a ‘huge’ pay rise in a double-your-money new contract, with Harrison currently nowhere near Leeds’ top earners.
The Verdict: Fingers crossed
Harrison began the season in exceptional form, contributing to four goals in the opening three Premier League fixtures. He has been the club’s second-best performer behind Pascal Struijk, as per WhoScored, so a new long-term contract to place him around the top earners in Yorkshire makes sense.
However, with Leeds struggling in recent weeks and facing the possibility of another relegation battle, Harrison may decide to stall when it comes to a fresh deal.
Everyone at Leeds will be hoping talks go well, and who knows, a new deal could see Harrison rediscover his fine early-season form.
