Leeds United transfer news as Jack Harrison will be linked with exit yet again

Leeds United may have no choice but to sell Jack Harrison in the summer transfer window if they are relegated, with several clubs likely to register interest in the winger, according to Dean Jones.

And according to former Eurosport journalist Jones, Harrison’s name will be thrown around in the summer transfer window, and Leeds may have no choice but to sanction his exit if they are relegated from the Premier League.

He told GiveMeSport: “I’m sure he will be on the radar of clubs again in the summer. I expect him to be one of the names that will be linked around.

“Again, it depends on how this season ends at Leeds on what happens with his future.

“I don’t think in an ideal world, they would be letting him go, but if they get relegated they’re going to have no choice.”


Harrison’s fluctuating form this season has been frustrating to witness, but there is no doubt that the club want him to be a part of their future plans at Elland Road.

After a string of poor performances recently, Harrison popped up with a crucial late goal against Brighton, which won Leeds a point, and this needs to be a starting point for a revival over the last few months of the season.

When at his best, Harrison can be a nightmare to defend against, with his direct dribbling and ability to hit the dead ball line a brilliant asset to have in the final third.

The Whites and Javi Gracia will be looking to do all they can to wrap up contract talks over the international break, but it would be disappointing to hear that the Englishman is only content with staying in West Yorkshire if the club stay in the Premier League.

In other Leeds United news, a star first-team player would reportedly be “very happy” to go as an audacious transfer approach is lined up from abroad.
