Leeds United managed to bring winger Jack Harrison back on loan from Manchester City this summer – he has been a big part of their Premier League campaign so far. Fans will be delighted to hear the latest Phil Hay update on Harrison’s future.
The news on Jack Harrison
There was discussion on Twitter about whether Leeds would look to sign the winger permanently. Phil Hay joined the chat and said: “Renegotiated deal gave Leeds the right to buy him next summer for a slightly increased fee (now around £10m). They’re committed to activating the clause.”
This is great news for Leeds
In his twelve appearances in England’s top flight, Harrison has thoroughly impressed. He has picked up two goals, four assists, and managed 1.3 shots and 2.3 key passes a game (WhoScored). He is also only 24 years-old, so has the potential to get even better than he already is.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has heaped praise on Harrison for his development since their time together at New York City FC, calling him a ‘lovely lad’ who has been ‘really really impressive’.
To be able to have a deal in place which has a set price-tag is perfect. If he continues producing stats like having the most key passes in Europe, then there is no doubt that Marcelo Bielsa will be getting an absolute bargain.
The move benefits all parties. Harrison clearly enjoys playing for the club or he wouldn’t have come back, and he is guaranteed consistent playing time at Elland Road, something which simply isn’t the case under Pep Guardiola.
