Newcastle: Magpies have asked about Jack Harrison

Newcastle: Magpies have asked about Jack Harrison -Newcastle United News

Newcastle have approached Leeds United over a potential deal for Jack Harrison, according to The Telegraph’s Luke Edwards

The lowdown

Leeds paid £11.5million to sign Harrison on a permanent deal from Manchester City in the summer of 2020.

He’s under contract for another two years but is thought to be earning just £15,000-per-week at Elland Road.

A left winger, Harrison has potentially been identified as a candidate to replace Allan Saint-Maximin, with transfer insider Dean Jones revealing last month that Newcastle would listen to offers for the Frenchman in the coming weeks.

The latest

Edwards says that Newcastle enquired about what it might take to sign Harrison.

Leeds responded with demands of £30million, but Newcastle are apparently ‘adamant that they will not be ripped off’ and view that as too much money.

As such, they haven’t taken their interest any further up to this point.

Newcastle fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The verdict

Is £30million really too great a price tag for Harrison?

He scored eight Premier League goals last season for a side that finished down in 17th, and the previous year, he had 16 goal involvements in the top flight (8G, 8A). Those are certainly competitive numbers.

Where will Newcastle finish in 2022/23?

What’s more, he’s only 25 years old, so he still has plenty of his peak years ahead of him in theory.

Newcastle’s all-time leading goalscorer Alan Shearer is certainly a fan of Harrison, telling The Athletic’s subscribers in 2020 that he had ‘impressed me hugely’.

It perhaps wouldn’t be a surprise to see another club meet Leeds’ valuation.

In other news, this maestro is willing to bide his time in order to seal a Newcastle move.
