Harrison joined Leeds on loan in 2018 before eventually joining on a permanent basis last summer after three years at Elland Road.
He played a crucial role in helping the club avoid relegation last season with eight goals in 35 league appearances.
Leeds have been one of the league’s most active clubs this summer, having signed Brendan Aaronson, Luis Sinsisterra, Tyler Adams, Rasmus Kristensen, Marc Roca and Darko Gyabi.
Meanwhile, Newcastle are back in the market for a striker too having missed out on Hugo Ekitike to PSG. They have asked about Bordeaux forward Sekou Mara, 19.

Newcastle are also among the clubs keen on Aston Villa’s Carney Chukwuemeka but he has interest from PSG, Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund.
The 18-year-old was left at home by Villa boss Steven Gerrard as the squad left for Australia last week.
Howe’s side have so far seen Sven Botman and Nick Pope come through the doors, while Matt Targett has joined permanently.
