Major outgoings are not a likely development at Leeds this week as the January deadline looms, but it’s worth keeping one eye on Jack Harrison’s future.
The Leeds winger is into the final 18 months of his contract at Leeds, and with that, there has come transfer interest from elsewhere in the Premier League.
Harrison has become subject to plenty of interest in the last 48 hours, with Mike McGrath reporting that both Leicester City and Newcastle United are looking into signing the winger.
Leeds are not keen to let Harrison go on a cut-price deal, though, with the Daily Mail claiming that the winger would command a £35million fee to purchase from the Whites.
Now, Sky Sports journalist Rob Dorsett has revealed that Leeds are not wanting to let the 26-year-old leave this month.
On top of that, their chances of holding onto Harrison have been boosted by the winger’s openness to remain at the club by penning a new contract beyond 2024:

If Harrison is keen to sign a new contract, then we need to tie him down to one as soon as possible to cut out this speculation.
However, if the club do seriously consider selling him, they also need to cash in as quickly as possible to get the highest value for him.
Selling to Leicester might be a big mistake, though, knowing we would be strengthening a direct rival in the relegation battle.
