Stoke launch bid for highly rated MLS youngster

Stoke City have made a bid of £3.25m for New York City winger Jack Harrison.

As reported in the Daily Mail, Stoke want to acquire the services of Jack Harrison. The 21-year old left Manchester United’s academy as a 14-year old to relocate to the USA with his family. He has been a success so far in the MLS, scoring 14 goals and providing 10 assists in 61 league appearances for New York City last season.

Harrison’s performances have even attracted the interest of England. Harrison was called up to the England Under 21 squad in October and made his debut as a substitute against Scotland.

Stoke have been monitoring his progress and have now registered a concrete interest by putting in a bid for the forward. New Stoke boss Paul Lambert wants to reshape his squad and a deal could be completed this week ahead of the January 31 deadline.

Harrison is managed by Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira at New York City and has thrived under his guidance.

He told ESPN: “I think everyone dreams of playing in the top leagues in Europe and the Premier League is obviously one of the best.

“Obviously growing up in England and everything it’s always been a dream of mine but as of right now I’m still a New York City player. We’ll have to see what happens.”

Harrison was born in Stoke-on-Trent and after seven years in the USA, it seems that Jack Harrison is coming home.
