Jack Harrison has suggested, in comments reported by the Yorkshire Post, that it would be an exciting opportunity if he was to return to Manchester City’s squad upon the completion of his loan spell at Leeds United.
Harrison has been a revelation for Marcelo Bielsa’s side this term. The 23-year-old has scored five goals and provided seven assists in the Championship.
Those tallies are already significantly better than what he provided during his first loan spell with the Whites.
So it would be no surprise to see Leeds take up the option to make his move permanent that they agreed when they brought him back for a second time (via club’s official website).
The Yorkshire Post notes that Harrison is keen to stay at Leeds permanently. But it appears that he is not going to put all his eggs in one basket just yet.
“It would be an exciting opportunity if I was to go back to Man City and work again with Pep Guardiola,” he said, as reported by the Yorkshire Post.
“What I’ve learnt with Marcelo I can take anywhere and if it is back there, it’s another great opportunity for me.
“I’ve learnt a lot over the last two years and I can take it wherever it may take me.”
TBR View – Leeds must keep Harrison
Whatever division Leeds are playing in next term, they must look to keep Harrison at the club. The wide-man has been outstanding this season and may have room to get better as he gets older.
The Whites are seemingly in pole position to land him when the window opens. And they must take that opportunity with both hands.
He has shown just how impressive he can be. His end product has stepped up several notches this term, while his work-rate has provided a reminder as to why Bielsa put so much faith in him while he was perhaps struggling last season.
There is obviously a lot of uncertainty surrounding football right now. But one decision that appears obvious whatever happens involves Leeds holding onto the attacker for longer.
