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.
