Newcastle United are expected to make another move to sign Leeds United winger Jack Harrison in the January transfer window.

That’s according to a report from The Northern Echo, who also say that Leeds are keen to secure a new contract for the 25-year-old before the market reopens, in a bid to ward off that interest.

Harrison’s future was the subject of much speculation over the course of the transfer window, with Newcastle among several clubs linked with the winger.

It is thought that the Magpies themselves made two bids for the former Manchester City man, the second of which was reportedly worth over £25million.

But while they were unable to get a deal over the line, it seems their interest in the Leeds man, is not over yet.

According to this latest update, an attacking midfielder is set to be a priority for Eddie Howe’s side in January, after they failed to sign one in the summer, with Harrison said to be high on the list of targets.

For their part, Leeds are apparently ready to offer the winger a new long term deal with a significant increase in pay, to ensure they retain his services, with his current contract due to expire in 2024.

It is little surprise that Newcastle are seemingly planning a fresh move for Harrison.

If anything, the winger’s performances at the start of this season have only enhanced his reputation, and he is perhaps unlucky not to have been handed an England call-up.

As a result, he is certainly going to be an appealing target for an ambitious club such as Newcastle, who obviously have money to spend.

However, given how settled he looks at a Leeds side who, judging by the transfer window, have big plans of their own, you feel there may still be a good chance Harrison will stay at Elland Road long term.
