Leeds are keen on signing Manchester City winger Jack Harrison on a permanent deal but look like being priced out of a move for the player.
The 22-year-old had an impressive season on loan at Elland Road, as Leeds narrowly missed out on automatic promotion and then fell in the Championship play-off semi-finals.
The winger made 39 appearances for Leeds, scoring four goals and adding three assists and admitted that he thoroughly enjoyed his time at Elland Road.
Harrison said on Instagram: “I am proud that my first full season in England was with Leeds United.
“Thank you to those who stuck by me through the highs and more importantly, the lows.
“I will forever be grateful for the opportunity to play for such a great club.
“I know Leeds will be back to where they belong.”
That form has seen the player’s value rocket to between £15-20m, the kind of fee that is out of reach for a Leeds side that missed out on the riches of the Premier League.
The report in The Sun goes on to state that a second loan move is more likely for the attacker, although City would favour a permanent exit for a player who started his career in MLS.
In a further twist, a number of other Premier League clubs have already held initial talks over Harrison – along with top teams across Europe.
