Leeds United journalist Beren Cross has claimed that Jack Harrison could return to the side for their next Premier League fixture.
Leeds face West Ham United this weekend, but go into the game with a host of significant injuries – notably, the likes of Diego Llorente, Robin Koch and Patrick Bamford are all out.
Will Crysencio Summerville become a regular for Leeds this season?
While speaking on a Leeds United Live Facebook stream, Cross explained, saying: “I think based on how Dan James did on Tuesday evening, my money would be on Dan James starting in place of Harrison. Although, of course, much depends on Raphinha.
“I think if Raphinha is out, then I think you’d probably see Harrison come back in to play on one wing and Dan James on the other, rather than play [Crysencio] Summerville again against West Ham.”
TIF Thoughts on Jack Harrison and Leeds…
Last season, he scored eight times in 36 league appearances, evidently doing enough to prove his worth to Bielsa. He is yet to score in his four Premier League outings as a permanent Leeds player, but could get the chance to rectify that if Cross is correct about his prediction.
