Jack Harrison admits he wants permanent Leeds move

Jack Harrison has admitted that he is very much open to returning to Leeds next season.

The winger is currently at Elland Road for a second season on loan from Manchester City, but speaking recently, he opened up on his time in Yorkshire and why he'd love to stay even longer.

Leeds have an option to buy Harrison for just £8m once the window opens but it remains to be seen whether Marcelo Bielsa and co are willing to pay that sum of money.

In an interview with Leeds Live, the 23-year-old said:

"There’s no reason why I should say ‘no I don’t want to stay here next season.’ Hopefully, if it’s in the Premier League, then even better. Fingers crossed that happens.”

Harrison has been a favourite under Bielsa and is in line to make the starting line-up for a 64th consecutive time this weekend when the Whites take on Cardiff.

GIVEMESPORT'S Matt Dawson says...

The Man City loanee is the definition of an enigma.

One day he's creating chances at will and the next, he can't even deliver an accurate cross. For that reason alone, it could be quite a risky move to sign him if they get promoted to the Premier League.

After all, his inconsistencies could well eat him up at that level.

Harrison has had one of his most productive seasons to date, netting five goals and laying on seven strikes for his teammates. However, in the opening ten matches of the campaign, he'd scored only once and failed to register a single assist.

It's that kind of form that Leeds can't afford to pay a potential £8m for. Though, if he displays the performances he's shown throughout the second half of the campaign, Leeds could be onto a winner.

The player clearly loves Leeds and Bielsa loves him. It would be an ideal match if they can secure him permanently.
