Leeds United winger Jack Harrison is attracting ‘ample’ interest from Premier League clubs ahead of the summer.

That is according to the Athletic, who claim Harrison is one of several who could depart in the event of relegation, despite having only signed a new five-year-deal last month.

Harrison’s newly agreed contract is said to include a release clause which is therefore likely to see him make a swift return to the top-flight.

The 26-year-old was close to making a move away on deadline day in January having travelled down to Leicester City to undergo a medical.

Leeds ended up pulling the plug on the deal at the last minute, which saw him end up staying, though he could well be on the move this summer anyway.

Harrison attracting Premier League interest

There will inevitably a huge turnover of players at Leeds this summer if they are relegated on Sunday and Harrison is among those who will almost certainly be on the move.

As well as interest from Leicester in January, Newcastle United were also said to be keen on acquiring his signature 12 months ago, but Leeds staved off their interest having already sold Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha.

Harrison has been able to put up decent numbers in the Premier League since promotion in 2020, scoring 20 goals and providing 16 assists across the last three seasons.

That said, Harrison has often been one to split opinion among supporters in the entire five-years he has been at Elland Road, due to long periods of inconsistent performances.

Leeds are well stocked for wide attacking options even if Harrison was to depart, though they would also undoubtedly face a fight to keep the likes of Luis Sinisterra and Wilfried Gnonto.
