Gallagher, who is a huge fan of Manchester City, has also been taken with winger Harrison's displays for Leeds upon his third full season loan from the Etihad.

The only issue is that Gallagher now wants him back.

Harrison is expected to become a Leeds-owned player this summer in a deal worth around £10m.

"Leeds have been great and I love their manager," said Gallagher.

"We could do with getting Jack Harrison back at City from his loan with them. This will be a huge Leeds win, maybe four. 4-0."

Speaking about his future in February on the Fútbol with Grant Wahl podcast, Harrison said: "I think this summer something is already in place, my agent knows more about all of this stuff than I do.

"Leeds has been incredible to me, I've developed a lot whilst I've been here.

"We always joke that I'm going to come back for a fourth year on loan.

"I think a lot of the lads still find it hard to believe I'm still on loan. We'll see what happens in the summer."

Harrison, 24, has amassed eight goals and eight assists during the current Premier League campaign.
