Leeds United round-up: Phillips wanted, Southgate watching and Bielsa’s day-trip

Phillips wanted

Kalvin Phillips is attracting interest from several Premier League clubs, according to a report. TEAMtalk are reporting that Arsenal and Everton are among the 12 clubs said to be considering a move for the player. Tottenham Hotspur are also said to be keen on the player.

Phillips has been in excellent form since the appointment of Marcelo Bielsa in the summer. It represents a massive turnaround for the player who struggled to find his best form in the Championship last season.

Phillips call-up?

The 22-year-old, who has been playing in midfield and defence this season, is also on the radar of Gareth Southgate. The England boss is looking at the Championship for some future England internationals. It appears that Phillips is one of the names on that list.

 

Bielsa at Spurs

Leeds United boss Bielsa spent his Saturday watching Tottenham Hotspur in action.

The Argentine is good friends with Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino, who he signed as a 12-year-old at Newell’s Old Boys.

With Leeds playing on Friday it allowed him a chance to watch Spurs in action v Huddersfield, with Harry Kane scoring both goals in a 2-0 win.
