Leeds United star Jack Harrison provides an update on his future plans

Leeds United winger Jack Harrison has opened the door to joining the west Yorkshire outfit on a permanent basis from Manchester City during the summer.

The 23-year-old initially joined the Peacocks on a season-long loan deal last season and he was able to sufficiently impress that the club decided to re-sign him on another temporary contract.

In the current league season, Harrison has bagged five goals and seven assists for Marcelo Bielsa’s side and he has been ever-present in the starting lineup with an average of 84 minutes per game.

Leeds have the option to buy him permanently for around £8m when the ongoing season concludes and he sees no reason why he wouldn’t want to stay put with the club.

“It’s been great for my development. As a player, it’s hard for me to say why I wouldn’t want to come back here,” He told in a media interview on Zoom, as relayed by Leeds Live.

“For me, it’s been a great experience. The lads have been great, working with the coaching staff I’ve learnt a lot and just the club as a whole have really helped me out.”

Harrison has not been overly impressive since the turn of the year for the Peacocks and he bagged just one assist from 12 appearances before the season was suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic.

With the extended three-month break, the attacker should have overcome any fatigue concerns and he will have a key role to play as Leeds look to return to the top-flight after a 16-year hiatus.

The club are currently at the top of the league table with a seven-point lead over third-placed Fulham and they are in a good position to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League with nine games remaining.

Still, they can’t afford any complacency, given they were in a good position to make the top-two last season before they experienced a disappointing finish to the regular campaign.

Leeds’ promotion push ended in the play-off semi-final stage against Derby County last term and Bielsa will be hoping to avoid a repeat of the same by maintaining the gap to the Cottagers.

Harrison is expected to start when Leeds take on Cardiff City on the road in their first game after the shutdown. The reverse meeting between the sides ended in a thrilling 3-3 draw. Leeds were three goals ahead at one stage.
