According to the latest reports from Leeds Live, sources close to Jack Harrison expects that the winger would sign for Leeds United on another year-long loan deal from Manchester City this week. Marcelo Bielsa had made it clear that he wanted to have the English winger back again on loan. The negotiations are ongoing, but the Whites are confident that a deal would be struck soon.
The Manchester City player is himself said to be preferring a move to Elland Road even though there was interest in him from some Scottish and English clubs. Harrison started the last season as a backup choice in the left wing position, but he soon got regular chances in the latter half of the campaign because of injury issues to other players and Ezgjan Alioski’s poor performances down the left flank.
Will Harrison be a good signing for the Whites?
To put it out bluntly, the Englishman was more or less below par in his performances at Elland Road. However, he did show some impressive signs in the second half of the campaign. His assist for Leeds United’s goal in the first leg playoff semi-final was sheer brilliance from the winger.
However, there were numerous occasions when Bielsa had to substitute him off at half time as he was unable to provide much on the pitch. But now it seems like the 22-year-old did enough to earn Bielsa’s trust again.
What works for Harrison?
One of the primary reasons why we think Bielsa probably wants to have him again is his work rate and movement. Harrison’s on the ball quality was often questionable, but his desire and commitment were often applauded. Moreover, he is already used to Bielsa’s playing style and training methods so the player shouldn’t have any problems settling in at the club.
Where can he improve?
His composure in the final third and decision making in crunch situations needs a lot of work. The Whites often got into great positions as they dominated their games, but they failed to take their chances. Harrison was often guilty of the same. The winger’s first touch is also questionable on occasions, and sometimes he looks way too hurried in possession.
However, there seems to be enough spark and potential in him that has made Bielsa go for him again. We hope that the club goes on to buy a standout left wing option and Harrison is used more as a squad player from time to time.
