Jack Harrison told to return to Leeds United 'in a heartbeat' as Everton loanee hailed
We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United …
Jack Harrison was Leeds United’s “best player last season”, according to Paul Robinson, who would take him back “in a heartbeat.”
Harrison made the switch from the Championship to the Premier League through a loan move to strugglers Everton this summer, but fortunately for the Elland Road faithful, he is set to return at the end of the season.
The Englishman is yet to make his debut for the Toffees in the midst of his recovery from a hip injury but is set to return to fitness in late September, per BirminghamLive (August 15), and was a rare standout in Leeds’ poor relegation-ending campaign last season.
Robinson has singled out the 26-year-old as the sole Leeds United loanee that he would want to be reintegrated into the squad next season, claiming his goal contributions and creativity last season should be rewarded with another chance at Elland Road if they get promoted this year.
Speaking exclusively to MOT Leeds News, Robinson said: “I’d take Jack Harrison back in a heartbeat.

“I think he was the best player last year. His goals, creativity, his assists and the way that he contributed to the team.
“But you look at the other players that are out on loan, I wouldn’t look at that as great if they’re coming back next year.
“You would take back without a shadow of a doubt. He’s injured at the moment and I think that’s possibly why it was a low move to Everton. I think he’ll be a huge asset to them when he gets fit.”
