According to The Athletic, Leeds United are ‘poised’ to complete the £11m signing of Jack Harrison from Manchester City this summer.
Leeds to sign Harrison
Harrison has been on loan at Elland Road since the start of the 2018/19 campaign. This term, he has been an important part of Marcelo Bielsa’s side, scoring six goals and providing four assists (Transfermarkt).
This latest report detailing Andrea Radrizzani’s plans to ‘widen his empire‘ suggests he will complete a permanent move to Yorkshire this summer – they will need to pay £11m for his services.
Harrison has been a key player for Bielsa ever since he made the move to the Whites. He played in all 46 matches last term in the Championship as Leeds returned to the Premier League for the first time in 16 years, and he has 16 goals and 16 assists in all competitions in 116 matches for the club.
Should Leeds sign Harrison permanently?
There is still room for improvement, but he is only 24, and moments like his goal against Liverpool on the opening day of the season are proof of the ability he possesses. Under the tutelage of Bielsa, he should continue to grow in the game. To pay £11m for a player now proven in the top flight and still with room to improve is really a snip for Radrizzani and co.
