Leeds United have seemingly priced Aston Villa out of any move for midfielder Kalvin Phillips. As reported by The Sun, Leeds have valued their midfield general at £30 million. That is said to be over half the initial fee Aston Villa were willing to offer.
Leeds have therefore warded off the threat on their key midfielder and Aston Villa will need to look elsewhere in their hunt for new talent this summer.
This should finally put Leeds United fans’ worst fears to bed. The general feeling for much of this summer has been to ignore interest in Phillips. The midfielder looks happy to be at the club and it always looked unlikely he would not have another crack at promotion under Marcelo Bielsa.
However, with Premier League sides lurking and talk of £14 million bids flying around, Leeds fans were rightly getting concerned that their best asset could be on his way.
That does not look like the case and Leeds United’s current valuation of Phillips is unlikely to be met by any interested party this summer.
Fans can now rest easy with Phillips likely to be a part of the team again next term.
