Leeds United reject second offer from Newcastle for Jack Harrison
Newcastle United have come up with another bid for Jack Harrison but Leeds United have once again rejected their offer, as per David Ornstein.
Writing for The Atheltic (22 August), Ornstein reported that the Magpies made their second bid in excess of £20 million for Harrison, but he has a higher valuation.
Leeds have made it absolutely clear that the player is not for sale this summer, and that hasn’t dampened Newcastle’s admiration to land the player.
This has been a massive transfer window for Leeds, and the results have been impressive so far.
Jesse Marsch has built a squad to his own taste, and the club are still looking to add one or two more players before the end of the window.
Harrison’s situation remains the same. Newcastle have been linked with a move for the former Manchester City winger, but the Whites are reluctant to sell him.
In the case of Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha, Leeds were prepared to let them go but only at the right price.
At the moment, Harrison is a key player in Marsch’s plans, and the Whites have no intention to sell him.
Unless Newcastle come up with a ridiculous offer, Leeds are unlikely to enter into any sort of discussion with the Magpies for Harrison.
The Whites have made an unbeaten start to the season, having picked up two wins and a draw in their opening three games. They defeated Chelsea 3-0 at Elland Road on Sunday (21 August) where Harrison scored the final goal.
