Newcastle United: Keith Downie says PIF could ‘revisit’ Jack Harrison deal

Newcastle United: Keith Downie says PIF could ‘revisit’ Jack Harrison deal -Newcastle United News

Sky Sports journalist and North East reporter Keith Downie reports that Newcastle United could ‘revisit’ a deal for Jack Harrison.

The Lowdown: Offer rejected

It was reported earlier this week that Leeds United has rejected an offer worth around £33.5m from the St. James’ Park outfit for Harrison.

They are thought to want about £39.4m for the winger, but could be reluctant to sell given that they have already sold Kalvin Phillips to Manchester City and Raphinha to FC Barcelona in this window.

The Latest: Downie update

Speaking on Sky Sports, Downie revealed that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s (KSA) Public Investment Fund (PIF) could ‘revisit’ a deal for Harrison, after being rebuffed by the Whites:

“Jack Harrison is another one. It’s my understanding Newcastle were interested but was something Leeds did not want to entertain at all. That might be one they try to revisit.”

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this transfer quiz! First up, who was Craig Bellamy sold to?

The Verdict: Exciting

It seems as if both clubs are not too far apart in their valuations of the player, so this is a deal that the Magpies should be looking to get done as soon as possible.

Should Newcastle sign Harrison?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Harrison chipped in with a handy ten goals and supplied a further two assists in total over all competitions last term (Transfermarkt), as he helped Jesse Marsch’s side avoid relegation down to the Championship, including scoring an injury-time winner away at Brentford on the final day.

He would give Eddie Howe another great option in attack, and of course the Toon would be weakening a fellow top-flight rival in the process.
