Leeds United have the option to sign on-loan Manchester City star Jack Harrison on a permanent deal according to Football Insider.

In his season-long loan contract, the option to buy was written into it allowing him to join them permanently at the end of the season.

The Championship giants recruited the winger from the Premier League champions during the summer transfer window on a second consecutive season-long deal.

Bielsa is clearly a huge admirer of Harrison having acquired him on another loan deal and as in a similar deal to the one of Helder Costa there is a possibility of him becoming a Leeds United player for a fixed price.

It is not known what the fee is however it is likely to be well in excess of £10million given that Harrison has three more years remaining on the City contract he signed when he joined in January of last year.

He is a youngster with plenty of potential and the Whites see him maturing at a rate that will see him thrive in the Premier League as well as in the lower tiers of English football.

Should Leeds be successful in their aim of pushing for promotion it appears that in all likelihood he will make his stay at Elland Road a permanent one with his chances of first team football at Manchester City looking very slim indeed with the riches they have at their disposal.

He has made an impressive start to the season on the left side of the attack, fending off competition from Helder Costa and Jack Clarke to start all six of their Championship matches so far.

The 22-year-old is very much liked by the Leeds faithful and it would be an exciting coup should they pull off a permanent deal for him.
