Everton have signed winger Jack Harrison from Leeds United on a season-long loan.
Having spent a brief period in the academy of Merseyside rivals Liverpool, Harrison then spent seven years in the Manchester United Academy before moving to the United States at the age of 14, where he played for his school-affiliated side Black Rock FC.
The Stoke-born winger was soon picked up by the Manhattan Soccer Club and in 2015 became the fifth overseas player to be named the prestigious Gatorade National Player of the Year for high-school soccer.
Following two successful seasons at New York City FC, where he was rated as the second best player in MLS under the age of 24, Harrison moved back to England and joined Manchester City, from where he gained Championship experience during loan spells at Middlesbrough and Leeds.
In July 2021, after the club’s first season back the top flight since 2003/04, his move to the Yorkshire side became permanent.
Harrison has made 107 Premier League appearances, scoring 21 goals and providing 16 assists.
Everton are next in action at Aston Villa on Sunday.
