The Mail claim Leeds United have rejected an offer of £20million from Leicester City to sign Jack Harrison ahead of Tuesday evening’s deadline – with Harrison yet to sign a new deal at Elland Road. His current contract ends in June.
Harrison, 26, was supposedly due to speak about his contract this month but nothing has materialised. Interest from Leicester has arisen in the past few days. 90Min say Leicester have made an enquiry, but it had been turned down.
The ex-Manchester City winger scored his second goal of the season on Saturday. One of the best of his career, and one of the best of our 22-23 campaign. First time, he bulleted a Patrick Bamford lay off into the Accrington Stanley net.
A barnstorming effort, that sees Harrison continues his wonderful form – also getting an assist for Luis Sinisterra’s goal. Playing five times in January, Harrison has had a hand in five goals – laying on four assists, two in a 5-2 win over Cardiff.
The latest report from the Mail claims that Leicester have actually placed a £20million fee on the table. But Leeds have already given their response to the Foxes’ offer, rejecting the bid. Some reports suggest Leeds want £35million for him.
Leeds reject £20million offer from Leicester to sign Harrison
The right decision. Harrison, right now, is one of our most in-form players and while we have brought in Georginio Rutter, and Luis Sinisterra is back – Harrison is key. Not only his ability to score, but his creativity is absolutely crucial.
Harrison has a good relationship with Rodrigo, aiding the Spain man reach a big total of 12 goals this term. So, making sure he is still at Leeds come the close of play on Tuesday is key. Even for £35m, Leeds must keep him at this late stage.
