Report: Newcastle remain interested in Leeds winger Jack Harrison
The Magpies showed plenty of interest in Harrison during the summer. Reports have claimed that Eddie Howe’s men even offered £33.5 million for the winger at one stage.
However, Leeds managed to see off interest in the 25-year-old. And they have been rewarded with Harrison making an outstanding start to the season.
He has scored one and provided three assists in the Premier League for Jesse Marsch’s side. The Englishman has already beaten his tally of assists for the whole of last season.
So it will come as no surprise to Leeds that Newcastle have not given up hope of signing Harrison.
According to 90min, they are continuing to monitor the former Manchester City man ahead of the January transfer window.
Newcastle remain interested in Harrison
Leeds lost their two best players over the summer. And with that, Harrison is one of those to have really stepped up in the early stages of this campaign.
He scored plenty of goals last season. And some of them were absolutely vital. But his overall performances often left a fair amount to be desired.
This year however, he has been superb. He has previously been labelled ‘unbelievable‘. And he is relishing the responsibility in the new-look attack at Elland Road.
So it would be a massive blow for Leeds to lose Harrison.
Much may depend on what kind of position the two clubs find themselves in in January. Obviously, Newcastle have lofty ambitions following their takeover.
But Leeds want to be competing for a spot in Europe too. And it would be a worrying statement from the Whites hierarchy if they allowed Harrison to leave for Tyneside.
