Jesse Marsch has made it clear to the Leeds United board that he doesn’t want Jack Harrison to leave the club this summer, according to Ben Jacobs.
The CBS journalist shared the news after David Ornstein had reported that Newcastle had fired yet another bid for his services and that it had been turned down again.
Harrison has been one of the best players in the Premier League so far and is valued at around £35million as he shined yet again in the huge win over Chelsea.
Writing on his personal Twitter account in the past 24 hours, Jacobs shared the latest coming from Elland Road with a busy week ahead for the Whites.
“Newcastle will struggle to persuade Leeds to sell Jack Harrison,” he wrote.
“Both bids (second reported by David Ornstein) significantly below Leeds’ £35m valuation. Jesse Marsch has made it clear to the board he doesn’t want Harrison to leave.”

Harrison has quickly become the main man for Leeds, and he is relishing that role.
Reuben Loftus-Cheek and Reece James were both embarrassed by the England hopeful at Elland Road on Sunday [21 August] and has quickly become the top assisted in the league.
His partnership with Rodrigo and Brenden Aaronson is quickly becoming frightening for the Whites, with other teams surely keeping a close eye on that and how to stop it.
Newcastle may have all of the money in the world, but they are trying to spend it wisely to avoid being caught by Financial Fair Play rules, which basically means they are trying to lowball clubs.
This is why they have struggled to sign many players so far, and that looks set to continue with this one.
Harrison cannot be allowed to go anywhere, and it is brilliant to see Marsch taking a stand and making it clear to the board at Elland Road that he is not for sale.
Thankfully, money isn’t an issue right now.
