“No way!” – Premier League owner says Toon target will NOT be joining Newcastle this summer

Toon target Jack Harrison will not be leaving Elland Road this month, as Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani dismissed rumours of a potential move to Tyneside.

It was reported last month that we had a £17m rejected for the 25-year-old, with some outlets claiming we bid almost half Leeds’ valuation of the player.

However, speaking to The Athletic, Radrizzani has rubbished talk of a summer switch to St James’ Park, having this to say when asked if Harrison could join Newcastle:

“Absolutely not. There is no way! [he will be sold].

Jack stays here.”

It remains to be seen whether we’ll return with a fresh offer, with previous reports suggesting the Whites would demand in excess of £30m for the former Man City man. However, all has gone quiet on this front and these latest comments may explain why.

Eddie Howe recently admitted that there was a “small pool” of attacking players on Newcastle’s shortlist, and it seems Harrison may be one we’re forced to forget about along with the likes of Moussa Diaby and Anthony Gordon.
