Leeds United winger Jack Harrison has signed a new five-year deal which will see him remain at the West Yorkshire club until 2028.
Harrison first joined the Whites from Manchester City on an initial loan deal in 2018, and became a key part of the side which secured Leeds’ promotion to the Premier League from the Championship in the 2019/20 season.
The Englishman’s contract was eventually made permanent, with Harrison handed a three-year deal in 2021.
As his contract began to run down rumours swirled concerning the 26-year-old’s future, and were only fuelled further by a dramatic January 2023 transfer Deadline Day which saw a move from Leeds to Leicester break down in its final stages.
Harrison has enjoyed a resurgence in form under current Whites boss Javi Gracia, scoring 3 and assisting 2 since the 52-year-old took the reins at Elland Road.
“Jack is a crucial part of our squad and our plans going forwards and I’m really happy he has agreed to commit his long-term future to the club,” said Leeds director of football Victor Orta in an official club statement.
“He is one of the most professional players I have come across in my career, he has an unbelievable attitude and only wants to continue improving and I know we will see him at his peak over the duration of the next five years.”
The Leeds hierarchy will be hoping that their faith in Harrison is rewarded with a continuation of his impressive current form, starting when the Whites face Crystal Palace this Sunday.
