Leeds United winger Jack Harrison is expected to join the Whites on a permanent deal next week, according to journalist Graham Smyth.
The Lowdown: Harrison shines on loan
The 24-year-old has been an excellent player for Leeds, shining under Marcelo Bielsa and scoring 18 goals in 128 appearances.
Harrison has just completed his third season on loan at Elland Road from Manchester City, but it now looks as though the move will be made permanent, as expected.
The Latest: Smyth provides key update
The winger won’t return for pre-season testing on Thursday, however, because he is still quarantining.
The Verdict: Significant boost for Leeds
This is a massive boost for Leeds, with Harrison such a prominent figure during a wonderful period in the club’s history.
The Englishman is such a force on and off the ball, ending up the Whites’ joint second-top scorer in the Premier League last season, scoring their first goal back in the top-flight, away to Liverpool.
He also averaged 1.8 tackles per game, however, highlighting his tenacity to win the ball back and thrive in Bielsa’s relentless style of play.
