Club careerEdit

Manchester UnitedEdit

Harrop marked his senior debut with a goal for United against Crystal Palace on the last day of the 2016–17 Premier League season, the first of a 2–0 win.[4] His goal made him Manchester United's 100th different scorer in the Premier League.[4] After finishing the season as the under-23 side's top scorer with 10 goals, Harrop rejected a contract offer from the club in June 2017.[5]

Preston North EndEdit

On 23 June 2017, Preston North End announced Harrop would join on 3 July, signing a four-year contract for an undisclosed compensation agreement.[6] On 29 September 2018, during a 3–2 loss to West Bromwich Albion, Harrop suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury, which is likely to keep him out for the rest of the season.[7]
