Danny Mills has claimed the deal that will see Leeds United sign Jack Harrison permanently is “almost a free transfer”.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Whites and England right-back was left bouncing by the news the winger is set to make Elland Road his permanent home.
Harrison is currently enjoying his third season on loan at Leeds and has started every Premier League game this season – apart from against his parent club.
The 24-year-old move to Man City from their sister club New York City in 2018 but is yet to make an appearance for Pep Guardiola’s side.
He now looks set to end his association with the four-time Premier League champions without a senior competitive appearance.
“That was a deal that was probably done when he first came in and continued from there,” Mills told Football Insider.
“A deal for around £10million now in current Premier League terms is almost a free transfer, it’s next to nothing.
“Especially when you know the player inside out. He’s been at the club for some time, he’s happy. That goes a long, long way to making things work.”
Harrison has scored 12 goals and provided 15 assists in 105 games for the Whites across all competitions in his three seasons at the club.
The left-winger has established himself alongside summer signing Raphinha as Marcelo Bielsa’s first-choice wide pair this term.
