Manchester City are ready to sell Leeds United loanee Jack Harrison permanently this summer, according to a report.

Harrison is currently in his third season on loan at Leeds from City. He played in every Championship game for the Whites last season as they earned promotion.

The winger is enjoying a productive maiden campaign in the Premier League. So far, he has six goals and four assists from 24 appearances in the top flight.

At 24 years of age, he now needs to settle at a club permanently. Harrison’s contract with City expires in 2022.

According to The Athletic, his parent club have now decided to let him go at the end of the season – as long as they can get the right price.

It is claimed that Harrison will be made available for around £11m. Whether it will be Leeds to stump up that sum or someone else remains to be seen.

Harrison has made 116 appearances for Leeds in total to date, recording 16 goals and 16 assists. He has never played a senior game for Man City.

It appears he never will, either. City do not have a place for him back in their star-studded squad, so will now finally try to find him a new permanent home.

Bielsa backs Harrison

Harrison has been a key player for Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa over the past three years.

However, Bielsa has taken the midfielder off in Leeds’ last three games. Even so, the manager insisted that Harrison still has his full support.

“Harrison is a very strong player mentally,” Bielsa said. “He’s a very dedicated professional and on occasions, as with all the players, I maintain a dialogue with him when I see fit.”
