Leeds United are reportedly set to make a decision regarding the future of Jack Harrison, who is thought to be of interest to fellow Premier League club Leicester City. 

Earlier this month, it was reported that the Foxes are interested in signing the Leeds winger this month.

With the January transfer window set to close tonight, some behind-the-scenes details have emerged out of Elland Road on the matter.

In a recent Twitter post, Romano had this to say about the situation surrounding Harrison.

He said: “Understand Leicester are now still pushing to sign Jack Harrison as negotiations continue. Leeds United, set to make a decision later today.

“Deal will also depend on Leeds chances to sign new offensive player in the final hours of the window.”

Leeds United fans, who were these players sold to? Starting with an easy one: Alan Smith

During his time at the West Yorkshire club, the 26-year-old has made 186 senior appearances across all competitions, scoring 30 goals and providing 29 assists along the way.

This season has seen the Englishman show how much of an important figure he is for Leeds and Jesse Marsch.

Specifically, with 20 appearances to his name, Harrison has started 18 of them, which proves how significant he is for the Whites manager.

Should Leeds sell Jack Harrison?





Across his 17 Premier League appearances, the winger has the highest average of key passes (1.8) and dribbles per game (1.4) at Leeds, making him a valuable attacking figure in the team.

His overall performances have earned him a season rating of 6.71/10 from WhoScored, making him the fourth-highest-rated player at the club alongside Tyler Adams.

With all of that in mind, we feel that the only decision that Leeds should be contemplating is whether or not to offer Harrison a new contract as his current one is set to expire in the summer of 2024.

In terms of Leicester’s interest in him, the Elland Road outfit should not consider letting their attacking star leave the club before tonight’s deadline, especially to another Premier League club.
