Jack Harrison confirms he will be at Leeds next term, makes Sheffield United claim

Jack Harrison has confirmed to ESPN that he will be a Leeds United player next season, despite a lack of an announcement from either Leeds or Manchester City to rubber stamp his future.

Harrison, 23, has spent the past two seasons on loan at Elland Road – clocking up 91 appearances in all competitions for Marcelo Bielsa’s side and having a hand in 22 goals. Scoring 10, he has also created 12.

Of those 22 goal involvements, 14 came during 2019-20 as Leeds gained promotion. The former New York City star had a permanent clause in his loan deal worth £8million, according to the Manchester Evening News.

 

But Victor Orta recently told Radio Marca that Harrison would be brought in on a third loan. Now, Harrison has confirmed he will rejoin Leeds – and claimed the club can do better than Sheffield United did in 2019-20.

“Everyone is really excited going into next year,” Harrison said. “We start again in two weeks. We don’t know the fixtures yet, it won’t really sink in. I’ll be there again next season so I’m excited to go back and do it all again.

“Under the leadership of Marcelo, I think we’re more than capable of staying up. You look at Sheffield United, they’re an organised team and their tactics are detailed. We’re hoping we can do the same, if not better.”

TBR’s view – Can Harrison thrive in Premier League?

Initially signing under Bielsa in the summer of 2018, Harrison showed glimpses of magic. His best moment in his first season was probably a stunning assist for Kemar Roofe in the first play-off leg against Derby.

But in his second season, he has bulked up, looked more confident and proved more of a goal threat with an end product. That level of improvement is required again this summer, if Harrison is to impress in the top tier.
