Leeds United ready to launch move for former loanee

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa is set to launch a move for former loanee Jack Harrison, according to the Football Insider.

Bielsa is keen on bringing the Manchester City winger back to Elland Road on loan after it was confirmed that the 63-year old would be taking charge of the Whites for another season.

Harrison spent the previous campaign on loan at the club where he made 37 Championship appearances, scoring four goals and assisting a further three.

The 22-year old split opinion during his time at Leeds last season but Bielsa has earmarked him as a key target as he looks to shape his squad for another promotion push.

The report states that Manchester City value Harrison at around £7.5m so any deal that brings the winger back to West Yorkshire is likely to be another loan move due to the tight budget that the Whites will operate with this summer.

Harrison, who spent time at both Liverpool and Manchester United during his youth career, made the move to America in 2013 where he joined Manhattan Soccer Club.

After spending time at college side Wake Forest Demon Decons he then made the move to New York City FC, playing alongside the likes of David Villa, Frank Lampard and Andrea Pirlo.

Harrison scored 14 goals in 61 appearances for the Blues, before current club Man City brought him back to his native England in January 2018. He was immediately sent out on loan to Middlesbrough but struggled to make an impact; appearing just four times.

He featured much more regularly for the Whites last term, but his inconsistent performances often frustrated the Leeds fan base.

Despite this, the winger is certainly somone that Bielsa is keen on and after a full pre-season with the Argentine under his belt, the Leeds contingent may see the version of Harrison that was so highly spoken of in New York.
