Well we can finally put some of those rumours to bed as Leeds United today completed the double loan signing of Jack Harrison from Manchester City, and Ben White from Brighton and Hove Albion.
Jack Harrison comes back to the club having spent last season on loan at Elland Road. He made 37 appearances last season and was a vital part in Leeds’ 3rd place finish, contributing four goals and four assists throughout the campaign.
Ben White, on the other hand, comes to the club having spent the latter half of last year on loan at Peterborough. A versatile defender, he can play at both centre back and right back and isn’t scared to get forward, he managed to get four assists last year in Premier League 2, including three in one game against Swansea City.
After been rumoured for so long, it was nice for Leeds fans to finally celebrate getting the deals over the line, and they took to Twitter to express their joy that two of their big summer targets are finally theirs.

A second season with a chance to buy at the end? He’s Leeds already that lad.
