Phil Hay reveals when Leeds United will take key step towards retaining constant asset

Contract talks between Leeds United and Jack Harrison could take place as soon as the summer transfer window ends.

Leeds are currently responding to Newcastle United’s interest in the 25-year-old ahead of the start of the Premier League in two weeks.

With just two years remaining on Harrison’s contract at Elland Road, this is the summer Leeds could land some serious cash for the winger.

Still, there is an ambition to keep it for the long term.

According to a report by Athletic’s Phil HayGiven Leeds’ interest in Harrison, contract talks are scheduled.

“With two years left on his contract, he is the only player of intrinsic value whose contract requires immediate attention. The club have yet to open any structured talks with him, but assuming Harrison remains at Elland Road , this discussion should begin near the end of this window or shortly after it closes.

Harrison scored eight Premier League goals last season, plus two in the EFL Cup.

Since arriving at Elland Road from Manchester City – originally on loan in 2018 – he has made 166 appearances for the Whites and scored 28 goals, while registering 21 assists.

How essential Harrison is for Leeds is underestimated.

Over the past four seasons, he has consistently delivered very good numbers. He’s frustrating at times, but he plays a lot of football and at the end of the season often has a say in some vital games.

Leeds should be looking to tie him down for the long term, not sell him.

If they can get through this summer and whatever Newcastle throws at them, they should be able to negotiate something with Harrison.

It should also be noted that the club have been good to him and hopefully there is a desire to stay and repay that in the years to come.

Can you see Harrison leaving this summer?
