The 21-year-old made just four Championship appearances for Tony Pulis' side after arriving in January last campaign, equating to a total of just 49 minutes.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, the winger is now set to undergo a medical at Elland Road after Leeds agreed a deal with Harrison's parent club Manchester City.

The Stoke-born winger joined City from MLS side New York City in January, before quickly making a loan switch to Boro.

However, the England Under-21 international failed to start a single game as Boro missed out on promotion in the play-offs.

Leeds are also close to completing the signing of Patrick Bamford from Boro, after agreeing a fee believed to be in the region of £10million.

The 24-year-old striker is also due for a medical at Elland Road in the next 24 hours.

Bamford and Harrison would become Leeds' fourth and fifth signings this summer.
