Leeds United could make the loan signing of Manchester City man Jack Harrison permanent in the summer should they win promotion to the Premier League.
According to The Athletic writer Phil Hay, who has discussed the future of Harrison, he believes that the winger could sign for the Whites if they reach the top flight.
Harrison is enjoying his second season at Elland Road as he looks to play his part in securing their return to the Premier League and has been one of the first names on the teamsheet so far this campaign for Marco Bielsa’s side.
The 23-year-old has already contributed with four goals and provided four assists so far this season and has established himself as a key member of Bielsa’s starting XI.
Hay said: “Not sure of the exact price but Leeds have the option to sign him permanently. Bielsa is a big fan of his so I’d imagine that he’d look for the club to exercise it if they go up.”
Harrison is currently contracted to Manchester City but with the depth of talent at Pep Guardiola’s disposal they could be wiling to allow him to leave for the right price, With the likes of Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez for Guardiola to call upon it looks highly unlikely that Harrison will be able to force his way into City’s plans.
The winger has proven himself to be a key player for Leeds United and he’ll no doubt be crucial to any hopes of securing promotion and should they do so Bielsa will be keen to recruit players who have showcased their quality and Harrison is certainly someone he could rely upon.
