Leeds United confirmed the signing of Jack Harrison on a season-long loan deal from Manchester City on Monday night, with the Championship club’s supporters delighted by the new man’s arrival.
With Marcelo Bielsa taking over at Elland Road this summer, the focus has shifted to brining in quality to the Argentine’s squad.
Initially transfer business has been slow, but Leeds have recently ramped up things to land Barry Douglas on a £5 million deal, with loan deals have also been confirmed for Jamal Blackman and Lewis Baker.
The Whites were promotion hopefuls last season and started the campaign well, but faded away in the second half of 2017-18.
Leeds supporters will hope that players like Harrison can help the Yorkshire outfit challenge for a top-six finish in the upcoming season, with the City youngster a prodigious talent.
The Championship outfit have allowed Hadi Sacko to leave the club and as such it looks as though Harrison could be in line to challenge for a starting berth in the team.
The Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to react to the transfer confirmation, with excitement and happiness the major emotions on show – here are the best tweets.

Tell you what. I'll take Bamford and Harrison over Lasogga and Sacko all day. That's steady, thought out improvement. #LUFC

I was sceptical of letting Vieira leave, but now that it has emerged that this has been actioned by Bielsa, I am encouraged. This deal, and the Harrison loan, shows that he is being given enough latitude by the board to do as he wishes. #lufc

Harrison has played with Lampard, David Villa, Pirlo and many more already … what more do people want to know about the kid #lufc

Really excited by the signing of Jack Harrison though, he’s exactly the kind of winger we didn’t have at the club and he tore up the MLS, Man City went out of their way to sign him, he’s clearly a very talented player. #LUFC
