Jack Harrison joins Manchester City, loaned to Middlesbrough

Manchester City have confirmed they have signed 21-year-old midfielder Jack Harrison from New York City and that he will spend the rest of the season out on loan at Middlesbrough.

"But as of right now, I'm still a New York City player".

While Newcastle and Stoke are locked in a Premiership relegation battle, Middlesbrough are trying to push themselves into the promotion playoff position in the Championship.

Harrison headed straight to Middlesbrough to complete his loan switch and become Tony Pulis' first signing as Boro boss.

In his debut season, he was nominated for the Rookie of the Year award and the MLS Goal of the Season award.

Jack Harrison will not only be remembered for his on-pitch contributions in the Big Apple, but also for being NYCFC's first promising youngster to make a move to a powerhouse club like Manchester City.

Harrison moved to America as a teenager and has impressed since bursting onto the MLS scene, with 14 goals and 10 assists from 55 appearances, but he does have family in Staffordshire and so a move to Stoke may be his preferred choice if he is to come back to England.

Harrison added: "Hopefully I can help them achieve that". Huddersfield bought Mooy for £8m last summer without him ever playing a game for Manchester City.

"Everyone dreams of playing in the top leagues in Europe and the Premier League is obviously up there".

Harrison told NYCFC's website on Tuesday that he will "forever be grateful to everyone at New York City FC for having faith in me and trading up for me in the 2016 MLS draft".

"Of course, it's sad to see Jack go but at the same time, we recognize this is an opportunity that he felt ready for and wanted", NYCFC sporting director Claudio Reyna said.
