Bailey believes that Harrison would desire a summer move from Newcastle United.
Jack Harrison, the standout player for Leeds United, is reportedly open to a summer transfer to Newcastle United after the club made an inquiry about the winger.
After addressing their defence under Sven Botman, the Magpies are eager to expand their options for offence this summer. They have been associated with players like Memphis Depay and Moussa Diaby, to name a couple, but neither has made any progress to yet.
The Leeds star Harrison, who according to Bailey is open to a transfer to the Tyneside club after they asked about his availability, is one player they could be trying to sign who is a little closer to home.
Bailey commented, “Jack Harrison, it’s a fascinating one,” during the LOADED NUFC MAG transfer show. We all know Newcastle really likes him, thus I believe he would like this transfer. They have asked, and based on what Newcastle regard him at, I believe there is a cap.
“I don’t think they view him as a player worth £35 million, it’s what Leeds would want,” I believe he would fit very well with Newcastle; I believe he would fit them incredibly well. Considering what we know about Harrison, I believe he would desire to move. (25:34)

SportEarly thought: Regarding Harrison to Newcastle
With Saint-Maximin reportedly heading to Tottenham Hotspur and the Magpies’ goal to challenge the top six, the Leeds star, who has been regarded as having a “huge effect,” would be a wise acquisition for them.
Harrison was a key contributor for Leeds last season, scoring 10 goals and dishing out two assists in all competitions, a total only surpassed by Raphinha.
He also demonstrated his defensive prowess by scoring in the 94th, 91st, and 85th percentiles for clearances, blocks, and tackles.
This versatility is essential for any team in the Premier League and combine this with his experience in the top flight and his guarantee that you will get a good player, he should be a very attractive prospect for Newcastle this summer.
