Leeds United forward Jack Harrison has agreed a new deal with the club with paperwork set to be completed in the next 24 hours – according to Sky Sports reporter Rob Dorsett.
This development comes just two months after a dramatic transfer Deadline Day for the Englishman, as he looked set to sign for Leicester City before Leeds’ hierarchy suddenly blocked the move.
Harrison has enjoyed a resurgence in form since the arrival of manager Javi Gracia in West Yorkshire, scoring 3 and assisting 2 in his last 6 games under the Spanish head coach.
As such, there are many amongst the Whites faithful who will be keen to see the 26-year-old stay and hopefully continue to thrive in Gracia’s system.
Harrison’s contract is due to expire in 2024, and rumours concerning his future have circulated as a consequence.
Now, it appears as if any speculation can be put to bed as Dorsett took to Twitter to confirm that Harrison has signed a new deal with Leeds, with paperwork due to be signed in the next 24 hours.
The Sky Sports man added that Harrison always wanted to stay at Leeds as opposed to Leicester and a full agreement has been reached between both sides.
“Jack Harrison has agreed terms on an improved contract with Leeds,” Dorsett tweeted.
“Expected to sign paperwork in the next 24 hours.
“Harrison wanted to stay, but also wanted reassurances after the club sanctioned his move to Leicester on Deadline Day.
“Now full agreement between the two parties.”
Harrison has effectively made himself undroppable in the Leeds XI at present, and will be keen on continuing his positive run of form when his side face Crystal Palace at Elland Road this Sunday.
