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.
