Everton have re-signed winger Jack Harrison from Leeds United on another season-long loan. The 27-year-old featured 29 times for the Toffees last season in the Premier League, scoring three goals and registering three assists.

“It’s brilliant to be back," Harrison told Everton's official website. "Everton is a great club, there is a fantastic group of lads here and I'm excited to get started again with a full pre-season of training.

“Last year, I had a lot of enjoyment at the club. We had to face a lot of adversity but we were able to continue on and have a good season overall.

“There are a lot of reasons for wanting to return to Everton. I think the club in general – the fans, the staff, the manager, my team-mates – everyone made me feel really comfortable right away and that's somewhere you want to be as a player. It’s a great place to play football.

“The other thing is I know I have a lot more to offer. That's extra motivation for me to go back and prove to myself and to Everton Football Club that I can do more on the pitch. This season I'll be able to have a full pre-season and hopefully hit the ground running.”

Harrison was part of Leeds' promotion-winning side in 2020, and spent three Premier League seasons with the club as a key player, scoring 21 goals and providing 16 assists in 107 top-flight games for the Whites. Following Leeds' relegation at the end of 2022/23, he joined Everton on a season-long loan, scoring against his former club Manchester City and helping Everton to a 15th-place finish.

The Toffees kick their campaign off at home against Brighton, followed by fixtures against Tottenham Hotspur and AFC Bournemouth - two teams Harrison scored against last season. See: Premier League clubs' summer 2024 transfers
