Leeds United are reportedly set to agree a loan deal for Manchester City attacker Jack Harrison imminently – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have responded with sceptical comments about the speculation.
Leeds Live reports that the Whites are set to complete a switch for the winger by the end of this week.
It is explained that talks are underway and the 22-year-old is keen to link back up with manager Marcelo Bielsa.
The Yorkshire giants know all about Harrison, as he spent the 2018/19 season on loan at Elland Road and he may be back for another stint.
Premier League champions Manchester City have an incredibly talented squad that will be very hard to break into and it looks like Harrison will be given more regular action in the Championship.
Harrison struggled at times last season for Leeds, but Bielsa showed faith in him by making him a regular starter and giving him 42 appearances across all competitions.
His return of four goals and four assists were short of the mark in a side that often dominated the ball, so he would need to improve that if he returns.
Bielsa isn’t blessed with numerous options in wide areas and the return of Harrison would bolster that area of the park.
A selection of Leeds fans aren’t convinced the Manchester City ace is the right target this summer and voiced their potential concern about his return.
Here are some Leeds fans commenting on Harrison:
Not good enough I’m afraid, why do Leeds fans except any player we are either linked with or bring back . I take it most Leeds fans didn’t watch 90% of games he played ?

His stats for last season are terrible. Works hard and had some good moments but can’t beat a man and can’t provide a final ball (Derby excluded). Bielsa must see things off the ball that he’s happy with.

Not exactly thrilled at this but Bielsa rates him so have to trust him I guess…

Bielsa wanted Baker back. Do you want Baker back as well?
