Harrison's loan from City to Leeds ends at the end of the year. Will Leeds ask to extend the free loan? Will Leeds buy? Let's see what happens next on Jack Harrison: City to City Season 3
It might depend a lot on whether Leeds come up or not. I love the guy, but right now I think he's at a good level. I can't imagine Leeds shelling out if they make it back to the Premier League, based on current levels of performance. I'm still hoping he kicks on and that he's a late bloomer due to his slightly unconventional path to professional football.

I haven't seen him play, but based on what I've heard (from you and others) I agree that he should stay in the Championship another year or two. He needs time to build confidence and skill, and seems to finally be getting some more consistent playing time for Leeds. Should they get promoted I think he'd be better off getting time at another Championship level club.

He’s scored in the mid 6’s and above on WhoScored so not turning in shabby performances, and it does seem that as of late Leeds has turned to him to start games, so maybe he has settled in enough to the English game to be able to step up?!? It’s not as if he’s getting 3’s and 4’s each match, and there is a more physical presence to the championship, than Premiership, which may not be what he needs to truly grow. My fear for him is that another year in the championship, if not on a team that appears to be an automatic promotion candidate, could get him stuck there because the players around him and/or the teams style isn’t suited to let him develop and shine. He’s fortunate to be on Leeds where the style matches his wheelhouse of abilities. If they go up, I hope they take him with them.

Harrison picked up an assist yesterday in Leeds’ 4-0 win over West Brom. He picked up a loose ball seconds after the opening kick and made a run down the left side. He made a long pass to the top of the box where his teammate made a long curling shot to the upper 90.

Leeds should sit in second after this weekend’s action.

Leeds should really make him a permanent squad addition. From Jack's POV it would be hard to find a better manager to develop with than Bielsa.
What’s amazing is he’s gotten 33 appearances this year for Leeds and has made a real impact with them, and they’re almost definitely gonna promote. Last year with Middlesbrough, he got maybe 8 appearances and not only didn’t they go up, but they’re desperate and on the outside looking in to snag the last playoff spot this season. Serves them right.
