Leeds United reject £33m bid for Jack Harrison from Newcastle United

Leeds United have rejected an offer from Newcastle United for winger Jack Harrison, as reported by French journalist Santi Aouna.

Writing for Foot Mercato on 1 August, Aouna reports that the Magpies have submitted an offer in the region of £33m for the winger, but it was rejected immediately.

Leeds, however, are looking for an offer in the region of £40 million for the 25-year-old.

Aouna wrote on Twitter: “Info: Newcastle offered €40M to Leeds for Jack Harrison. Offer refused by Leeds who claim €47M.”

Take a bow, Radz

Wow! This is a master tactic from Leeds board, and Andrea Radrizzani is proving to be a top-notch owner who has shown doughty refusal to wilt under any pressure this summer.

This has been a recurrent theme for the Whites this summer, and he deserves huge credit for sticking to his decisions.

Leeds have lost two key players in Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha, but they have sold them at a high price.

In the case of Raphinha, Barcelona tried their level best to lower the asking price, but Leeds stood firm in their decision.

Jesse Marsch doesn’t want to sell Harrison who is an important player for the side.

However, every player has a price, and Newcastle, the mega-rich club, will have to pay the right amount for the winger.

The amount quoted for Harrison is staggering, but Leeds want more. If that’s the price they’ve set, Newcastle will have to meet that amount, or else they can forget it.

This is also a warning for Leeds. Newcastle have financial power and they can come back with a better offer. The club must find some alternatives ready, right now.

In other Leeds United news, Kalvin Phillips has been slammed for “patronising” Leeds fans with a gesture he made after he joined Manchester City.
