Jack Harrison has had an up-and-down first season at Leeds United.

The 22-year-old joined Leeds on a season-long loan from Manchester City and although he had an indifferent first half of the campaign, Harrison is proving his worth more and more.

On Saturday, he scored the game's only goal as United beat Sheffield Wednesday to take a big step toward the Premier League.

Whatever happens in regards to the Whites' promotion bid, Leeds should be trying to make him their first summer signing.

 

At 22, Harrison has bags of potential and working under a man-manager of Marcelo Bielsa's talents could do wonders for his career.

The young winger, who earns £51,000 per week at Eastlands [Spotrac], will find it ever so hard to break into City's senior team on a regular basis and therefore he should be examining his long-term options.

At Leeds, he would be adored by fans, potentially playing Premier League football on a regular basis and working under one of the sport's most respected figures.

Where's the downside to moving to Elland Road?

He is still prone to rather anonymous displays, but they are becoming increasingly infrequent and if the Whites can get a permanent deal done, they absolutely should.
