Leeds announced the return of Jack Harrison on Monday, with the Man City player returning on another season-long loan.
And he looks sharp and ready to go, scoring a worldie in a training video posted by Leeds on Monday evening.
As the ball floats over his shoulder, Harrison controls the ball with his right foot before hammering the ball past Bailey Peacock-Farrell in goal. Okay, he was only up against one static defender, but it was a peach of a finish and Leeds fans are looking forward to seeing him do this when the season starts.
It was reminiscent of another Leeds training moment from last November when Patrick Bamford scored a pearler. The only thing missing this time was Marcelo Bielsa running half the length of the pitch to hug Harrison.

Harrison showed flashes of this sort of brilliance last season – like the set-up for the Kemar Roofe goal in the first leg of the play-off semi-final against Derby – but he didn’t deliver enough.
His xG in the Championship over 90 minutes was just 0.14 [http://wyscout.com] and Leeds will need him to improve on that, along with his 70% passing accuracy.
Leeds fans are optimistic though – this is what they’re saying on Twitter after Harrison’s goal:
Telling you now this kid will be awesome for us this year. Whilst others have been on there jollys he has been working to improve his game 👌

At least someone agrees! People were annoyed with him coming back but he’s got a lot of potential. This year he will be key

This lad is going to tear the league a new one this year 👌🏻 Harrison has absolutely hammered off season training. Only seen Ronaldo do it as much…

Was a peach of a ball over the top to set it up. That would have been a goal of the season contender with ease

Why couldn’t he have done that from 4 yards out against Derby 🙄
