Leeds United have negotiated an agreement to sign Jack Harrison permanently from Man City at the end of the season.
The Yorkshire giants have an option in the Man City winger’s current loan contract to sign him by a stipulated date.
A recruitment source has told Football Insider that the fee will be more than the sub-£10million clause in his 2019-20 loan contract.
The Yorkshire giants chose not to activate Harrison’s permanent-deal clause last time out, as they were already committed to multiple other signings in a summer in which they spent £100million on new talent.
That included converting the 2019-20 loans of Helder Costa and Illan Meslier into permanent deals at a combined £20m cost.
Leeds could also have activated the Harrison option, but chose to instead renegotiate terms as he signed for a third consecutive season-long loan.
Harrison, 24, has 18 months remaining on his City contract but is not in Pep Guardiola’s plans and has admitted he would like to sign permanently for Leeds.
The left-winger has never played for his parent club but has racked up more than 100 appearances for his temporary employers.
He has impressed in the Premier League this season and has been a virtual ever-present in the team during Marcelo Bielsa’s three-term reign.
Harrison has started 12 of Leeds’ 13 Premier League matches this season, missing out only against City as he was not allowed to play.
He has scored two goals and supplied three assists, producing an outstanding display in Wednesday’s 5-2 demolition of Newcastle United.
