For the third time, Leeds are expected to sign Manchester City’s Jack Harrison on a season-long loan deal.
Harrison has been at Leeds throughout Marcelo Bielsa’s tenure and has grown into being a pillar of the starting XI.
Though Leeds were expected to sign him permanently this season, subject to promotion, it’s thought that delaying the move a year allows Leeds to spread the financial impact more to their favour.
Harrison predominantly has played down the left-wing for Leeds this season but he did occasionally play down the right in the season before.
One of the major improvements that has come for Harrison this season is the additional goals and assists he has added. In 2018/19, he scored on four occasions and assisted two goals. This season, he has scored six goals and made eight assists. Harrison also created 17 big chances across the season, according to sofascore.
In terms of playing style too, Harrison has adapted his game.
Last season, there was a lot of final balls that went missing as he was forced out wide, where he’d serve in a cross to no avail.
This season, Harrison seemed far more comfortable with playing a direct wide attacker role. Instead, he’d make his run into the box or pass centrally before he’d been pushed out.
Harrison is certainly a player who is ready for the test of the Premier League.
