Fresh off his appearances for Manchester City on their pre-season tour of America, England under-21 international Jack Harrison is set to join Leeds United on loan.
The winger put in some good performances on tour but due to the stockpile of elite wingers at the Etihad, there was little prospect of him breaking through this season, and he will continue his development under the tutelage of Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds.
According to Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post, Harrison will undergo a medical today ahead of a season-long loan move to Leeds.
