Leeds United have not received any new bid for Jack Harrison
Leeds United have not received any new bid for winger Jack Harrison, as reported by Graham Smyth.
Foot Mercato reported on 1 August that Newcastle United have submitted an offer in the region of £33m for the winger, but it was rejected immediately.
However, Smyth wrote for the Yorkshire Evening Post on 2 August that there has been no new bid for the player.
The Whites knocked an approach from the Magpies earlier this summer. Jesse Marsch is very keen on Harrison, and the Magpies will have to come up with a huge bid to prise the player away.
It was reported by Santi Aouna on Twitter (1 August) that the Whites are looking at a fee in the region of £40 million for the 25-year-old.
Anything can happen
Harrison has established himself as a key player for Leeds in the past few seasons, and he is an important part of Jesse Marsch’s plans as well.
He is a fantastic dribbler with an eye for a goal, but most importantly, he puts in a lot of defensive shifts. His energy and work rate is essential to how Leeds operate.
Having lost both Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha in the summer window, Marsch is unlikely to lose another key player.
However, every player has a price and Leeds could be forced into making a bold decision if Newcastle come up with a big offer.
The Magpies are also keen on Leicester City’s James Maddison, and they have had two bids rejected already [Sky Sports].
With the Foxes demanding a high transfer fee, the Magpies could turn their attention towards signing Harrison at some point in the transfer window.
However, the message from the Whites should be pretty simple – if you want to get him, meet our demands.
