Graham Smyth shares if Leeds United received £22m bid from Spurs for Jack Harrison
Leeds United did not reportedly receive any bid from Tottenham Hotspur to sign Jack Harrison this summer.
According to the Yorkshire Evening Post’s Graham Smyth, there was interest in the Englishman’s services, but no concrete bids were made.
While he admits that every player has a price, he claims that the player is not for sale, at least from Leeds’ perspective as they want him to stay.
Asked if Spurs made a £22m bid for Harrison, he responded, “There was interest in Jack Harrison and a conversation or two but as far as we’re aware no concrete bids. These things sometimes come down to semantics. One man’s bid is another man’s enquiry.
“Every player has a price, of course, but Leeds are more than happy to keep Harrison for next season.”
The stance on Harrison has been clear from the start – Leeds do not want to get into any deals for the Englishman.
Moreover, with Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha leaving, the Whites cannot afford to lose three of their best outfielders in the same window.
It sends a message that they are a selling club and it will be harder to attract players to join in the future.
Whether or not Harrison leaves in the coming seasons, remains to be seen, but this time around, there’s a very good chance that he stays put at the club.
Spurs have recently signed Richarlison so it’s unlikely that they will want another attacker which is good news for Leeds.
With most of the top clubs having already signed players they want, it will be a surprise if the Whites receive any other bids for him in the coming weeks.
In other Leeds United news, the club have now opened talks with an ‘Incredible’ title-winning central midfielder to replace Kalvin Phillips.
