Leeds United must not sell Jack Harrison in this window

Leeds United are going through a transitional phase after a horrendous season where they narrowly managed to escape relegation.

One of the players who has been linked with a move away from the Elland Road is winger Jack Harrison, according to The Athletic.

The reports suggest that despite the initial interest from a number of clubs, the winger has also been monitored by Newcastle United and a compromise cannot be ruled out.

Harrison, who joined the club on a permanent deal in the summer of 2021 from Manchester City after spending three years on loan, has a contract with till the summer of 2024.

Catch Up

Despite making three summer signings this season, it almost feels like Leeds United are playing catch up in the transfer market.

They barely scraped their Premier League status and have already lost their star man in the midfield — Kalvin Phillips — to Manchester City.

If that’s not enough, they are also likely to lose star winger Raphinha with both Barcelona and Chelsea doing their all to sign the winger in the coming days.

Regardless of the size of the club, it is always difficult to replace three big names in the same window and that is why Leeds’ management must do all they can to ensure that Harrison will not leave the club in the current transfer window.

In the previous campaign, Harrison was influential in the final third for the Whites where he scored eight times and provided an assist in 32 appearances in the Premier League, including a brilliant performance on the final day of the competition against Brentford where he scored a winner [Whoscored].

In other Leeds United news, the club reportedly has a shortlist of at least four players to replace Kalvin Phillips.
