Danny Mills has claimed Leeds United will seal some “really smart business” if they succeed in re-signing Jack Harrison from Manchester City for a second loan.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-United defender is convinced that Harrison can be more effective next season that in his first campaign on loan from the Premier League champions.

As revealed by Football Insider, Leeds have tabled a £1million-plus loan offer for the 22-year-old and are confident they will best rival English clubs in the race for his signature this window.

“I think it is really smart business if Leeds get it done,” Mills told Football Insider. “Getting him back on loan is a sensible move, good for the player and good for Leeds.

“He can improve a lot and needs to be consistent week in, week out. You only get consistency by playing. The fact is has had one decent season and is capable of having a better one.”

A permanent transfer is out of the question for Leeds, with sources from the club telling Football Insider he is valued at £7.5million by Man City.

“That’s way too big a fee for Leeds for a player who is all about potential,” added Mills. “A loan deal makes more sense at this stage.”

As reported by Football Insider, Bielsa wants at least two signings “in the building” imminently, and he is hopeful that the Harrison deal can be the first that is finalised.

For the player, it would be his third loan spell after initially joining the Premier League champions from their sister club New York City in January of last year.

He was immediately loaned out to Middlesbrough for the second half of 2017-18, before his 2018-19 spell at Leeds.
