'Get him signed', 'Unreal' – Many Leeds fans react to Phil Hay Twitter message: 'Absolute steal'
Leeds United finally did to Hull on Saturday what they’ve been threatening for a while now, scoring four goals and making a huge statement in the Championship.
That’s four wins in a row and four clean sheets after a real slump in form that was threatening their automatic promotion hopes.
Man City loanee Jack Harrison played one of his best games for Leeds at the KCOM and was really unlucky not to get on the scoresheet.
Athletic journalist Phil Hay tweeted on Sunday to say, “Not sure Jack Harrison has played better than he did yesterday. A nightmare to contain. Could be Leeds’ for £8m in the summer.”

That’s the price of the option Leeds have to make his signing permanent after two seasons on loan, and the way he’s playing at the moment that’s looking like it could be one of the bargain buys of the summer.
Harrison is getting better all the time and he could be landing in the Premier League with Leeds just at the right time.
Plenty of Leeds fans agree and think that they will be landing a “genuinely world-class” player.
It’s credit to Marcelo Bielsa, who has obviously worked closely with Harrison after recognising his potential and sticking with a player who’s not always delivered what his talent has suggested he should.
Keeping hold of Harrison on a permanent deal will likely depend on Leeds getting promoted, although they could still potentially buy him for £8m and sell him on for a profit if they don’t go up.
However, Leeds are back on track for the top flight and it means that Harrison could be bombing down the flanks in the Premier League under the watchful eye of Bielsa next season.
These Leeds fans desperately want to see that happen…
Cheap as chips on the current market, City might as well sent him for nothing and got us to pay the cab fair, that's how insignificant 8m is, especially given the guys quality 😁

Has come on leaps and bounds under Bielsa.

What a bargain, top player

He has turned into an outstanding player. Bargain at £8m.

An absolute steal for that kind of money! Did City not rate him at all? Big credit to Harrison but also credit to MB, he’s taken the lad up a few levels!

Absolute bargain on the evidence of this season

Him and Meslier MUST be signed permanently in the summer, no excuses! Harrison was quality last season but a few issues he needed to work on and he has done that tenfold. Meslier will be quality, no doubt about that.

I’m sorry but you really can see why city first quoted us 20m. He’s easily going to be worth that. Next year he’ll be unreal

£8m for an English player (given how that inflates the price) is an absolute steal in my opinion. He gets better with every game.

Been different class than last year. Always creating trouble for the defenders when he has the ball #Lufc

£8 million is a steal in today’s market. He would easily cost upwards of £20 million. He could have so many more assists this year too if we finished our chances better. Leeds’ POTY for mine
— Corey GOATes (@CoreyGOATes) March 1, 2020
His first touch is genuinely world class. What a bargain that would be for 8m🙌🏼

£8m steal. Yes please
