NYCFC's Jack Harrison headed to English Premier League
New York City FC's Jack Harrison looks set for a move back to England and could be pulling on the shirt of his hometown club.
Offers from Stoke City and West Ham have the two Premier League clubs in pole position for the Englishman's signature, where the youngster could make his debut in the top flight before the end of January.
The fee is rumoured to be around £3.5 million with the clubs both happy to meet Harrison's personal terms in a much improved deal compared to his MLS contract.
Harrison began his career at Liverpool in 2002 at the age of 7 before a move to Manchester United in 2003. After 7 years at Old Trafford, the 21 year old decided to pursue his dream across the Atlantic in New York.
Staffordshire-born Harrison has made 53 appearances for NYCFC in Major League Soccer, scoring 14 goals. He has learnt from Premier League and La Liga veteran David Villa in his time at Yankee Stadium and his impressive performances are the reason Stoke and West Ham are both interested in adding his talents.
