Newcastle to test Leeds United resolve for Jack Harrison, new owners could appeal - report

Newcastle United could be set to test the resolve of Leeds United for Jack Harrison, according to the Telegraph on Tuesday afternoon [24 May].

The newspaper has reported on their website that the Whites staying in the Premier League has made any potential deal unlikely at this stage at Elland Road.

The Magpies were described as an attractive potential destination for Harrison given their progress under Eddie Howe and new cash-loaded owners.

It is said that a deal for Harrison would have been easier if Leeds had dropped into the Championship.

The winger hit double figures in goals for the season when smashing home the goal that handed Leeds all three points to cement their spot in the Premier League.

Newcastle are also said to have an interest in Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha, although all three deals at this stage look more than unlikely for the Magpies, regardless of money.

No chance.

Jesse Marsch will surely be a big fan of Harrison given how he has seen him from a young age.

The winger got his professional breakthrough in the MLS at New York City, with Marsch at New York Red Bulls at that time of their careers, with them crashing together at Elland Road.

The workrate of the former Manchester City man, as well as the ability to play inside as well as out wide has seen him shine at times in this new system, especially on Sunday afternoon [22 May] on the final day when it really mattered.

Leeds don’t need to cash in on any of their players given the guaranteed Premier League windfall coming their way, with Raphinha one of the likeliest exits given his strong links to Barcelona.

Newcastle don’t hold that clout, let’s be honest, money or not.

We expect Harrison to be lining up as usual at Elland Road next season and continuing his rise to the top with the Whites who gave him his chance in England.
