Reliable journalist shares if Leeds United give Newcastle positive signs over Jack Harrison transfer

Leeds United have reportedly not given Newcastle any positive signs that they want to sell Jack Harrison in the January transfer window.

Give Me Sport journalist Dean Jones claimed that the Magpies were still interested in signing the English winger, but any deal for him is unlikely.

He also said that it’s looking like the 26-year-old will stay at Elland Road beyond the window and at least until the end of the season.

Jones said, “There is still interest from Newcastle, but to be honest, that seems as unlikely as ever.

“They haven’t had any positive signs that that might become possible, so it does look at the moment like Harrison will end up staying at Leeds.”

Makes sense

Leeds cannot afford to weaken themselves even more as they may well be in for another relegation battle this season even though Newcastle could pay over the top due to their super-rich Saudi owners.

While Harrison has dipped in the past few months, his talent is not going to disappear and once he gets back into form, he will have a decent run of goal-scoring performances.

Crysencio Summeville’s rise has certainly made things tougher for him, but there seem to be no suggestions from the 26-year-old that he wants out.

If Leeds do sell him, they will have to sign another winger and that’ll only add to their transfer dilemmas with them still not narrowing on the striker and left-back they want to bring in.

Victor Orta now needs to quickly get these two transfers over the line as soon as possible and then think of any potential exits.

Mateusz Klich’s future also hangs in the balance and we’re hoping that’s not hindering the process of bringing new faces through the door in January.
