Newcastle United have made an offer of 24million to sign Leeds United winger Jack Harrison, but the proposal will likely be rejected, with Leeds holding out for a fee of around 36million.
Leeds have already stuffed in Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips this summer. Despite the initial payment of 100 million, Leeds will be wary of selling another player. They certainly do not need to spend in order to do so.
Leeds would much prefer to keep their existing squad intact, despite the fact that they have already brought in six new players.
Newcastle is prepared to put their resolve to the test. For much of the window, they have been linked with Harrison, who was hailed as amazing by Alan Shearer. Now, TMW claims Newcastle have made an official offer of 24 million.
Leeds' initial investment of 11 million is now more than doubled, but Leeds' intention is to pay another 12 million, or 36 million. He has a contract at Elland Road until June 2024.
Newcastle has made a 24 million bid to sign Leeds winger Harrison.
Newcastle is reportedly intent on purchasing Harrison. The Toon do have Allan Saint-Maximin, but they lack competition. Of course, they also lack a starting right-sided winger, and maybe Harrison or Saint-Maximin would do a job there.
Leeds is right to refuse a fee such as this. Unless they make a wild offer for the English footballer, why would they cash in? Harrison did state his intention of leaving, but it appears Newcastle will have to up their offer.
