The 22-year-old is highly thought of by Bielsa, who will be delighted that his Leeds side have his services next term, as he plots to finally get the Yorkshire outfit back into the Premier League.

He made 20 appearances for Carlisle last season and has attracted plenty of interest but he will now join up with the Leeds Under-23 side with a view to joining the first team squad.

Tottenham Hotspur have made their first signing since January 2018, bringing in Jack Clarke from Leeds United.

Most of those were from the bench but he managed to score two goals and register two assists.

Veteran left-hander Cole Hamels was removed from his start against the Cincinnati Reds after suffering a left oblique injury. He entered he start against the Cincinnati Reds on Friday with a 6-2 record, a 2.92 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP in 98.2 innings.

Clarke only made his senior debut in October but impressed enough to be named Leeds' young player of the season. Spurs will pay an initial £10m for Clarke, and that fee could rise to £11.5m if the teenager meets a number of performance-related targets.

But Leeds fans will be excited to hear that the 18-year-old will now return to Elland Road on a season-long loan.

Harrison featured 42 times in all competitions for the Whites last season, finding the back of the net on four occasions and contributing to a number of other strikes throughout the course of the campaign.

A big pull factor for White would have been the confirmation of Marcelo Bielsa staying at Elland Road for another season as he looks to push for automatic promotion this season.
