Leeds United ask Newcastle to double their offer for Jack Harrison

Leeds United have told Newcastle United to double their offer for winger Jack Harrison, according to iNews.

The 25-year-old has been attracting interest from the Magpies who are eager to bolster their attacking department ahead of the next campaign.

There have been reports that the Toon Army have already tabled an offer of £25million which was rejected by the club [90min].

As per the latest report, the Whites have demanded Newcastle to double their offer for their star winger as the club is eager to not lose another of their star player in the ongoing transfer player.

Bright Spark

In a season full of disappointments, we can safely say that Harrison was one of the few bright sparks for Leeds alongside Raphinha.

In the 2021-22 season in the Premier League, the 25-year-old played 35 games, scoring eight goals and providing one assist [Transfermarkt].

Even though he prefers to play as a winger but he is equally effective in a system where he is being asked to play in a more central attacking role, thus making him an ideal player to have for any team in the Premier League, especially the ones outside the top-six.

In a window where Leeds have already lost the likes of Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha to Manchester City and Barcelona, it is imperative that the club’s top-tier management would do all in their power to ensure that they will not lose another of their key players.

Harrison has played 166 matches for Leeds across all competitions where he has managed to score 28 times and provided 22 assists as well.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites are ready to sign off on this major new signing but it’s dependent upon one factor.
