According to Phil Hay, Leeds United are looking to extend Jack Harrison’s contract after rejecting a move to Leicester City on deadline day.

According to David Ornstein, the Foxes launched a £20million bid, and were in talks with Leeds ‘until the deadline’. Reports claimed Leeds were willing to ship the forward to release funds for more signings, but this latest report says otherwise.

The Athletic’s journalist Hay reported that talks between Leeds and Leicester carried on right until the 11pm deadline on Tuesday evening:

“While Raphinha and Phillips were used to fund last summer, Leeds avoided losing Jack Harrison yesterday despite concerted interest from Leicester City running right to the last hour of the deadline.

“More contract talks with Harrison are expected soon.”

Jack Harrison joined Leeds United from Manchester City in 2021. He has 18 months left on his current deal, with Leeds keen on extending his stay at Elland Road.
