Leeds set to finalise Jack Harrison deal, sell-on clause included
Leeds United are finally set to finalise the permanent transfer of Manchester City winger Jack Harrison this week.
The Manchester Evening News have reported on Tuesday that the Whites are finalising the paperwork and the medicals.
It is suggested that Leeds will pay £15million for the winger, who has spent the last three seasons at Elland Road on loan.
One development on the deal is the sell-on clause that City and Pep Guardiola are likely to include.
It is suggested that it is “certain” to be in the deal, with the Premier League champions known for wanting part of any future deals when letting their players leave the Etihad.
Andrea Radrizzani and Victor Orta have timed this perfectly, not spending anything until Harrison has become one of the most important members of the squad.
Not many have developed as well as Harrison since Marcelo Bielsa arrived, and for only £15million, Leeds have secured themselves a great deal.
It also opens up another loan slot for the Whites to use should they need it, and could use their close relationship with City yet again.
A bizarre image surfaced this week, and it was Harrison delivering the most points on Fantasy Football of any City player, at or away from the club.
Guardiola trusts Bielsa with his life and would send any of his available players to Elland Road if given the chance.
For now, let’s celebrate this deal as the transfer window finally starts to heat up in West Yorkshire with just over a month to go until the Premier League kicks off.
There has never been any doubt that this deal will get done, and it could be announced as early as Thursday.
