Report claims transfer fee Leeds United need to pay for 23-year-old

According to The Manchester Evening News, Leeds United will have to pay £8 million as transfer fee to sign Jack Harrison on a permanent contract from Manchester City.

It has been reported that City will sell the winger for £8 million, and although Leeds would want to keep the 23-year-old next season if they clinch promotion to the Premier League, they have yet to approach the defending Premier League champions for a permanent move now.

Permanent Leeds United move?

Harrison is in his second spell at Leeds at the moment, having returned to Elland Road on a season-long loan deal in the summer of 2019 after spending the 2018-19 campaign on loan at Marcelo Bielsa’s side during the 2018-19 campaign as well.

The 23-year-old, who can also operate as an attacking midfielder, has progressed well under Bielsa, and he can score goals and creates them.

A permanent move to Leeds in the summer of 2020 should the Whites clinch promotion to the Premier League would make sense, especially as it is hard to see the winger get a chance to feature for the City first team.
