Jamie O’Hara has told TalkSPORT that Leeds United winger and Tottenham transfer target Jack Harrison deserves to be in the Premier League Team of the Season so far – comparing his creativity stats to Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne.

In what is the 25-year-old’s third season in the Premier League, Harrison has made a blistering start. In his first three Premier League games, he laid on three assists and even scored in a 3-0 win over Chelsea. The next three, not so good.

He has failed to add to those numbers – but continues to keep creating chances. It comes after producing 25 goal involvements in his first two seasons in the Premier League – scoring 16 and creating nine. He continues to get better.

Little surprise then, that Harrison emerged as a target for Tottenham and Newcastle in the summer. But Leeds, who had already sold Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha, chose to keep him. They placed a big £60m price tag on the winger’s head.

With his contract ending in 2024, there is still doubt surrounding his long-term future. But reports claim he is likely to sign a new deal before the January window. Tottenham-supporting pundit O’Hara was full of praise for Harrison.

“Jack Harrison [has got to be in the TOTS so far]. He’s created three goals, he’s created 15 chances – he’s only behind Kevin De Bruyne. He’s been awesome, I can’t believe he wasn’t in the England set-up. He deserves to be in the TOTS.”

Ultimately, Harrison has been incredible for Leeds. Joining on loan from Manchester City in 2018 and remaining on loan until the summer of 2021, Harrison has clocked up a huge 172 appearances for the Whites.

Harrison is rarely injured, always hard-working, and continually improving his end product. Leeds have got to get him tied down to a new deal. If not, Newcastle and Tottenham will come calling in January, or at the end of the season.
