Leeds fans had been nearing going into meltdown a couple of weeks ago. However, the fans are now starting to get very excited as Marcelo Bielsa nears the signing of young Manchester City winger, Jack Harrison. This isn’t the only deal that The Whites could be nearing, as Patrick Bamford also looks set to join the club.
More transfer news – YEP understands that Leeds United are set to sign Manchester City winger Jack Harrison on a season-long loan. Twenty-one year old who was at Middlesbrough last season. Expected to undergo medical today. #lufc

Harrison made the move from New York City FC to sister club Manchester City back in January and only a day after joining the Citizens he was shipped out on loan to Middlesbrough in the Championship. However, he only managed to complete four appearances for the club and now it looks like he’ll be signing a season-long loan with Leeds, making him the third loanee to join the club this season alongside Jamal Blackman and Lewis Baker.
The Elland Road faithful will be aiming for promotion to the Premier League next season and if they can get a few more of these linked layers in then it will no doubt help them greatly. Baker and Blackman are currently the only two new faces at the club, however, with Harrison, Bamford and potentially Barry Douglas also on their way to the Championship giants then it could be a matter of time until they’re back in the Premier League.

Cracking signing that, Harrison has a big future and will be an England international IMO!

Very good player! Watched quiet a bit of him when he played in MLS for New York City!

Unproven over here. Potential is there. Could be a good signing.

The Leeds fans are excited about this one and with good reason, considering how impressive the young winger was in his New York City days.
