By Sean McCaffery, January 30, 2018

In a move that should surprise not a soul, phenom Harrison of England has gone home, the first movement of its sort from the MLS club to the red hot team across the pond. Many a young girl has just become a Man City supporter as he was quite the fan favorite amongst them. The first selection by the Chicgo Fire in the 2016 draft was then acquired by NYCFC. his production with 59 games played and the 14 goals made him quite the target.

Jack inked a deal with Man CIty for 3.5 years then loaned out to Championship side Middlesbrough through the end of the season. Jack stated to NYCFC.com " I'll be forever grateful to everyone at New York City FC for having faith in me and trading up for me in the 2016 MLS Draft. NYCFC has felt like home form the moment I arrived and has given me some of the best experiences of my life."

Sporting DIrecror, Claudio Reyna saw this change as proof positve on the staff at NYCFC in the developmental process of Jack garnering interest from clubs in Europe. Head Coach Patrick Vieira found him a pleasure to work with, that he devopled rapidly on the strength of his hard work and talent as always looking to improve.

We have numerous photos of Jack and will post some of them on our Facebook page, #SoccerLongIslandMagazine.

Whether the beloved Mumsy was included in the signing was not disclosed.
