UPDATE: Jack Harrison signs with Man City, loaned to Middlesbrough

Jack Harrison’s move to England appears close with reports saying he’s set for a big transfer and an immediate loan move.

According to the Northern Echo, Harrison is set to complete a transfer to Manchester City within the next 24 hours. He will immediately be loaned to Middlesbrough, according to the report, and will join the Championship club for the rest of the season.

(UPDATE: The move went official on Tuesday afternoon as NYCFC and Man City announced the transfer. Harrison signed with Manchester City on a three-and-a-half-year deal.

“I can’t wait to get started over here,” Harrison said.“I’ve really enjoyed my time with New York City and I’d like to thank Patrick Vieira and his coaching staff for helping me to develop as a player. I feel I’ve really improved working under him and playing regularly in the MLS, but now I’m looking forward to testing myself in England.

“Middlesbrough are a good club, with Premier League experience and they’re in the mix for a return via the playoffs this season. Hopefully I can help them achieve that.”)

The reported fee for the deal is $6 million with performances bonuses and a sell-on clause included, per Goal.com.

Harrison had previously been linked with a move to Stoke City, but the Premier League club had seen a pair of bids declined by New York City FC.

The English winger has played in 55 MLS games, scoring 14 goals while adding 13 assists. His stock rose immeasurably in October, though, when he joined England’s U-21s for the first time.
