New York City FC's Jack Harrison looks set for a move back to England.

Offers from Stoke City and West Ham were being fielded by his parent club NYCFC but it's now likely Harrison will move to Manchester City who are owned by the same group as New York.

The attacker is currently in the UK ready to complete the deal which is rumoured to be around £4 million.

With riches in finance and personnel, it's unlikely Harrison will feature for Manchester City this season and could instead find himself loaned out to Championship club Middlesbrough where he will help them in their bid for a return to the Premier League.

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.
