Leeds: £60k-a-week star 'not available' at Elland Road
The £60,000 per-week ace only joined the Elland Road club permanently last summer following three successful loan spells, but he’s been the subject of intense speculation from Newcastle this summer.
What’s the latest news involving Harrison?
Just two days after Leeds avoided relegation, the Telegraph claimed that Newcastle were interested in signing Harrison, who scored the vital goal at Brentford, which secured Leeds’ Premier League status.
According to reports in France, some two months later, the Magpies, who are in desperate need of attacking reinforcements, launched a £33.5m bid, although Leeds had already lost Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips and therefore knocked back the offer.
The Daily Mail have since stated that Leeds won’t consider bids of less than £35m, with Harrison now arguably their most important attacking player, especially with Patrick Bamford once again out injured.
Harrison has made a bright start to the Premier League campaign, helping Leeds collect four points from their opening two fixtures against Wolves and Southampton.

As a result, Jones believes that the Elland Road hierarchy are insisting that the ex-New York City star is not for sale.
What did Jones say about Harrison?
He told GIVEMESPORT: “I think Harrison had a really good game at the weekend, he was creating a lot of opportunities and the message coming out is that he’s not available.”
How has Harrison performed this season?
Leeds might have dropped two points at Southampton on Saturday, but it was another promising afternoon for Harrison, who has started the campaign in blistering form.
In his two appearances, Harrison has created the most big chances (3) in the top-flight, which has helped him claim two assists, one of which being a fine cross for Rodrigo’s opener at St Mary’s.
Overall, Harrison has created 11 chances for his teammates and is only the second player to reach that figure across the last decade of Premier League football, with Kevin De Bruyne being the other.
Of course, Harrison is unlikely to keep pace with the Manchester City star for the whole of the season, but those numbers just highlight the level he’s performing at currently.
