Newcastle have now enquired about 'unbelievable' Leeds United player - journalist
Newcastle United have enquired about the prospect of signing winger Jack Harrison from Leeds United this summer.
Give Me Sport claim that Newcastle have asked about how much Harrison would cost to prise away from Elland Road.
That means they are under little to no financial pressure to sell Harrison after raising funds from the sale of their two best players.
Newcastle have enquired about Jack Harrison
In Give Me Sport, journalist Alex Crook said: “There’s some interest in Harrison.
“I know Newcastle have enquired, but at the moment, the price tag is too hefty.”
The fees for Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha have not been over the top, which does mean that perhaps Harrison could be bought if Newcastle are serious.
But Leeds have to be careful about selling too many stars and having to replace too many key players in the one transfer window, ahead of Jesse Marsch’s first full season in charge.
Phillips labelled Harrison ‘unbelievable‘ after the final day win over Brentford which helped ensure Premier League survival.
He netted eight goals in the Premier League last season, and has stepped up with some huge goals for Leeds in the past.
Certainly, the onus is now on Newcastle to make Leeds an offer they simply cannot refuse, after their enquiry found that the asking price is hefty at present.
