Jack Harrison is finally confirmed as a permanent Leeds United player, making a permanent move across the Pennines from Manchester City on a three-year deal, for a fee believed to be around £11m.

The former England u21 international joined Manchester City after an impressive breakthrough in MLS at New York City, and had an early loan spell at Middlesbrough, before finding his feet at Elland Road and establishing himself as a Premier League player.

Usually playing on the left wing for Marcelo Bielsa’s newly promoted Leeds side, Harrison notched eight goals and eight assists - the highest goal contribution for an English midfielder in the Premier League this season, only missing the games against parent club Man City in the league. Leeds had a very impressive finish to the season and finished ninth in their first season back in the top flight.

In his prolonged loan spell at Leeds Harrison has played 128 games in all competitions for the club, scoring 18 goals and providing 20 assists, but last season was certainly his most impressive since he joined - making Leeds’ decision to activate the clause they had to make the deal permanent a ‘no-brainer’.
