Jack Harrison has signed a new long-term contract with Leeds United, committing his best years to the club.
Leeds United winger Jack Harrison has agreed to a new five-year contract.
The 26-year-old, who was on the verge of joining Premier League rivals Leicester on January’s transfer deadline, will now stay at Elland Road until the summer of 2028.
“Jack is a crucial part of our squad and our plans moving forward.” “I’m really happy he has agreed to commit his long-term future to the club,” Leeds director of football Victor Orta said.
“He is one of the most professional players I have seen in my career”. “He has an incredible attitude and only wants to improve.” “I know we will see him at his peak over the next five years.”
Harrison joined Leeds on loan from Manchester City in 2018, and the deal was extended twice before becoming permanent in 2021.
Leeds paid a fee of £11 million, and Harrison agreed to a three-year contract that would expire in the summer of 2024.
In the previous transfer window, Leicester accepted a £20 million bid for Harrison, but the deal was called off by Leeds, reportedly while the player was having a medical, due to a late change of heart by the Elland Road hierarchy.
Harrison has 33 goals in 197 appearances for Leeds in all competitions this season and has been a standout performer.
He has appeared in 31 games, registering nine assists and five goals, including the equalizer in Tuesday night’s 2-1 home win over Nottingham Forest.
Jack Harrison pens 5 years contract with Leeds United
After signing a new contract at Elland Road, Jack Harrison believes Leeds United have ‘unfinished business’ in the Premier League this season.
The 26-year-old agreed to a new five-year contract extension, keeping him in West Yorkshire until the summer of 2028.
He has three goals and two assists in his last six games for the Whites. Also he has been in excellent form since Javi Gracia took over for Jesse Marsch in February.
The winger scored in Leeds’ 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest at Elland Road on Tuesday. He helped the club climb to 13th place and move two points clear of the relegation zone.
“Happy to sign a new contract with the club,” Harrison wrote to his 216K Instagram followers. Thank you for all of your help over the years!
“We’re not done with the year yet; we still have work to do.” We must take it one game at a time, with everyone on board. “I’ll see you on Sunday.”
