Report: Leeds waiting on big announcement to make exciting signing

Leeds United are hoping to make the loan-signing of Jack Harrison permanent, according to reports by Football Insider.

The Whites are waiting on a transfer window announcement this week, with a meeting taking place to decide when clubs will be able to enter the market.

If the proposed window of 27 July until 5/6 October is agreed at the shareholders meeting on Thursday, Leeds could have the green light to sign Harrison at the end of this month.

The Manchester City winger is currently on loan at Elland Road for the second season in a row, having yet made an appearance for his parent club.

Harrison has become an integral part of the Leeds line-up under Marcelo Bielsa, making 44 appearances and scoring six goals in all competitions.

Over his two seasons in Yorkshire, the wide man has now featured 84 times, showing the faith in which the Leeds boss shows in the talented winger.

While there is no future for the 23-year-old at the Etihad, the Whites are keen to make a move for the left-winger and could do so as early as July 27th if an agreement is made this week.

Under the current deal which has seen Harrison join Leeds on loan, the Championship leaders have a clause to make the deal permanent.

United are looking to activate that clause if they are to secure Premier League football, which is looking increasingly likely given their strong return to action.

Leeds top the table with five games remaining, and will be hoping to end their 16-year wait for a return to the top flight by claiming an automatic promotion spot.

If they do so, Harrison could make Elland Road his permanent home following two successful loan spells in Yorkshire, with this news set to be welcomed by their supporters.
