Jack Harrison has suggested that Leeds United have an agreement with Manchester City over finally moving to Elland Road on a permanent basis, with reports suggesting it would cost the Whites £10million – and City supporters have reacted on Twitter.
Harrison, 24, is currently on loan at Leeds for a third consecutive season, with the Whites choosing to bring in Harrison on a temporary basis agin – instead of making a permanent move. However, Leeds have included a permanent option.
This season, the former England Under-21 man has been in stunning form – he has had a hand in nine goals during 20 Premier League outings, scoring five and creating four. Leeds fans are desperate to see him remain at Elland Road.
Speaking to Grant Wahl’s Futbol podcast, Harrison has confirmed that there is an agreement in place with Leeds over a potential permanent move in the summer. The Yorkshire Evening Post state it would cost Leeds just £10million.
“I think this summer something is already in place, my agent knows more about all of this stuff than I do,” Harrison said. “We always joke that I’m going to come back for a fourth year on loan. We’ll see what happens in the summer.”
Harrison has failed to play for City since joining the club from New York City – since going on loan to Middlesbrough and then Leeds for the past three seasons. Despite remaining on loan, he has clocked up a huge 112 appearances in all competitions.
Manchester City fans have reacted on Twitter to the news that Harrison is set to join Leeds on a permanent basis, and while some feel the fee of £10million is pretty cheap for the winger – one fan claimed it was a “good deal”.
Not good, he is worth more than that!!!

Clubs too candid in selling its players.

I get that but why give Leeds an option to buy at all? Let the market decide Harrison's value not an option to buy which caps our income.
