Leeds United sign Jack Harrison on a permanent deal

Jack Harrison joins Leeds on a permanent deal after spending the last three seasons on loan from Manchester City.

Leeds United has signed Manchester City winger Jack Harrison on a permanent deal. Harrison made 128 appearances in all competitions for Leeds and had spent the last three seasons on loan with Leeds.

Leeds has activated an option put in place in Harrison’s contract during last season’s loan deal that allowed the club to sign him for an undisclosed fee from Manchester City. Leeds, who had announced earlier on Friday that Stuart Dallas their player of the year had signed a new three-year contract, confirmed they had taken up their option to make Harrison’s stay permanent.


The West Yorkshire club said: “As part of his loan deal last season, an option was put in place for Leeds to sign Harrison on a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee, which has now been activated. Harrison has put pen to paper on a three-year deal at Elland Road, running until the summer of 2024.”

The 24-year-old has signed a three-year contract at Elland Road that will run until the summer of 2024. Manchester City signed Harrison in January 2018 from partner club New York City after entering MLS as the No 1 overall pick in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft.

He was loaned to Middlesbrough until the conclusion of that season. He then joined Leeds for the first time in July 2018 and stayed there for three more one-year loan spells. Under Marcelo Bielsa, Harrison has made 36 Premier League appearances last season and scored eight goals as Leeds finished ninth in the table.
