Joined QPR as an 11 year old and progressed through the youth system at Loftus Road, signing a two year deal with the Premier League side in May 2012 having previously made two substitute appearances for the First Team at the start of the 2011/12 campaign. He later went on to make ten appearances on loan at St Albans City in the Southern League but failed to add to his First Team appearance tally with QPR on his return to Loftus Road.
Originally signed for Wanderers on an one month 'youth loan' from Queens Park Rangers in time for the January 2013 New Years Day meeting with Exeter City at Adams Park. His loan with Wycombe was extended to the end of the 2012/13 season and he went on to total 20 appearances before returning to Loftus Road at the end of the season. He made what would turn out to be his only start for Rangers when he played the full 90 minutes in the final game of the 2012/13 Premiership season - a 1-0 defeat away to Liverpool.
He spent the following season on a long term loan at 'League One' Gillingham, while the 2014/15 campaign saw him spend an extended loan at Luton Town in 'League Two'. Returned to Wanderers on loan again from QPR at the start of the 2015/16 season and scored his first goals in a Wycombe shirt when he bagged a brace in the 2-1 home victory over Hartlepool United on 5th September 2015. Added a further four goals as he became a regular in Gareth Ainsworth's side and was rewarded with a permanent three and an half year deal on 6th January 2016.
Ainsworth commented at the time: "Michaelís a player Iíve known for a number of years and he was one of my first loan signings when I became manager here. Heís got everything you want from a professional Ė he gives his all, heís got bags of ability and heís a great character to have around the club. To be able to keep him here is a fantastic piece of business and Iím grateful for the support of the board who have enabled me to make Michael a permanent signing."
Meanwhile, Harriman added: "Itís a fantastic feeling for me to sign. Iíve played my best football here and this was the only place I wanted to be. This club makes you feel like home and Iím happy to be staying here for good."
At the time of the deal the fee was 'undisclosed', with Wanderers Chairman Andrew Howard saying: "This is the first time in my tenure as chairman that we have paid a transfer fee for a player, but I believe this signing shows our ambition to move forward as a club. Michael has become a very important part of the team and he epitomises the culture that we now have in place."
Scored 8 goals for Wanderers in 38 League starts for Wanderers during the 2016/17 season - gradually being utilised more in a midfield and defensive role, rather than his original forward position. In October 2017 he suffered a major set-back in his career when he broke his leg in training - forcing a lay-off until March 2018 but returning in time to enjoy being part of the team that gained promotion to League 1 following victory at Chesterfield on 28th April 2018.
Started the 2018/19 campaign as a regular in the starting XI for Wanderers but appeared to fall out of favour towards the end of 2018 and was apparently close to signing for Notts County during the January 2019 transfer window. Having stayed at Adams Park, he was eventually recalled to the side during the closing weeks of the season (due to injury problems in the squad) and again enjoyed being part of the side that retained their League 1 status on the final day of the season.
The Club announced on 8th May 2019 that he would be released when his contract expired at the end of June 2019 - he finished his second spell at Wycombe having taken his total appearance to 163.
