'Wow', 'we've been robbed': Some fans think their club has sold Leeds a top player for peanuts
Leeds United have finally signed Jack Harrison on a permanent deal.
The 24-year-old has spent the last three seasons at Elland Road on loan from Manchester City.
Harrison has made 128 appearances in all competitions for Leeds and he’ll certainly be adding to that tally.
Leeds activated an option put in place during last season’s loan deal that allowed the club to sign him.
While the fee is undisclosed, BBC Sport claims the Whites have landed him for £11m.
And some City fans reckon Leeds have got themselves a bargain for such a talented player.
11 million seems far to low in my opinion… 8 goals and 8 assists in the prem last season and he’s only gonna get better, could of easily got double that for him— Hedghog11🏴🦔 (@Hedghog111) July 2, 2021

Harrison made 36 Premier League appearances for Leeds last season, registering eight goals and eight assists.
Pundit and former England international Peter Crouch loved seeing Harrison in action last seasons and sung his praises back in May.
“I’ve watched Leeds a fair bit this season and every time I watch him he has an impact,” he told BT Sport (15/5/21, 2:30pm).
“He was the best player on the pitch for me today and every time he got the ball he was running up and he does his defensive work very well.”
