Leeds close to securing Jack Harrison on season-long loan

Leeds close to securing Jack Harrison on season-long loan

Leeds United have been working hard this summer to bring in transfer targets and have only just started to enjoy the window recently.

Marcelo Bielsa has been keen to add a couple of faces to his squad since his arrival, however, he has been left frustrated after a number of moves have collapsed.

The Whites have already signed Chelsea duo Lewis Baker and Jamal Blackman to season-long loan deals, whilst they only just recently completed their first permanent transfer of the summer when Barry Douglas arrived from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

It is believed that Patrick Bamford could be on his way to Elland Road in the near future, however, reports are now suggesting another signing could be on the cards that has caught many by surprise.

The Yorkshire Evening Post are claiming that Leeds and Manchester City are in advanced talks about signing Jack Harrison on a season-long loan deal. The media outlet also claims that the player is to undertake a medical later today and will join up should it be successful.

The Verdict:

The loan move of Harrison will have come as a surprise to many as his name has not been mentioned with a move before.

With the relationship between Bielsa and Pep Guardiola as it is, many of other names have been touted with moves, however, the 21-year-old appears to be the man to be heading to the Championship outfit.

The versatile winger will offer the Whites the pace and creativity they need down the right-hand side and the England Under-21 international will be looking to make a bigger impact than he did at Middlesbrough last season.
