Jack Harrison has admitted to ESPN FC a desire to play in the Premier League with Leeds United next season, but is also open to the idea of returning to parent club Manchester City.
The winger has had a much improved second season at Elland Road and has helped Leeds to top spot in the Championship prior to the recent football suspension.
Leeds United are currently on course for Premier League football next season and Harrison is clearly of the belief that he could be of benefit in the top-flight. However, his future does still sit largely in the hands of Manchester City, something he is not ignorant of.
“Me, myself, I want to do everything I can to help them get to the Premier League and hopefully I can still be with them next season.
“As a player, I always want to play at the highest level and push myself to the limit. I am not opposed to going back to Man City if that’s what’s required of me, if that’s what is wanted. I have to be ambitious as a player as well.
“If it’s playing with Man City or wherever, or with Leeds in the Premiership next season, I’m going to try and play my best wherever it is. We’ll just have to see what happens I think.”
When Harrison signed for Leeds for a second time last summer, it was announced there was a clause in the deal for it to be made permanent at the end of the season.
Whilst no fee was mentioned, the Manchester Evening News reported earlier this year that the Premier League side would be willing to let Harrison leave for a fee in the region of £8 million.
Of course, that would also likely carry caveats, such as buy-back clauses and sell-on fees, as Harrison is a player Manchester City clearly rate highly.
But if Leeds are promoted there is no doubt his best move might be a permanent switch to West Yorkshire.
There is no doubt that Harrison would be willing to work hard and continue improving wherever he ends up next season. But considering his improved form this term, Leeds United fans will hope it is at Elland Road.
