‘He’s key’: Leeds fans fuming over reported £14m interest in Kalvin Phillips

The Whites midfielder is set to be the interest of a bid from Aston Villa.

It looks set to be a long summer for Leeds United as interest in their star players looks likely to intensify in the coming weeks.

The Whites were denied a shot at promotion by Derby County who defeated them in the semi-final of the play-offs.

That defeat could now have implications ahead of the 2019/20 campaign, with potential suitors likely to look towards signing their players.

It seems unlikely that the Whites would sell for that amount but Dean Smith might be undeterred in his efforts to land the midfielder.

Phillips played 42 league fixtures under Marcelo Bielsa last season and was the heartbeat of his free-flowing attacking outfit.

His presence in the middle of the park allowed the attacking options to thrive and he would be a massive loss to the club.

Money talks, however. If Phillips can be sold for close to £20 million, it could be reinvested into Bielsa’s squad; leaving Leeds with a decision to make.

The club’s supporters are pretty unanimous in their stance on Phillips.

The vast majority don’t think £14 million is anywhere near enough to secure his services and have taken to Twitter to offer their thoughts.
