Leeds United star Jack Harrison has ‘improved a lot’ during his time at Elland Road and it ‘makes sense’ that the club are eager to tie him down to a long-term contract, according to Sky Sports reporter Tim Thornton. The Whites headed into the international break sitting 11th in the Premier League table, having sealed two victories, and Harrison has remained a key man in head coach Jesse Marsch’s side.
