Sheffield United fans react to reported interest in Leeds’s Kalvin Phillips

A number of Sheffield United fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from The Sun over the weekend suggesting that the Blades are interested in Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips.

Chris Wilder’s men look to have a fantastic chance of playing European football next season. They currently sit seventh in the Premier League table, and are just four points off the top four.

And The Sun suggests that they plan to look to Elland Road should they manage to book a ticket into a continental competition next term.

It is claimed that they are interested in Phillips. And they are hoping that potential European football could give them an advantage over Wolverhampton Wanderers and Burnley in the race for his signature.

And it appears that that may be an opinion shared by a lot of Sheffield United fans. Plenty of supporters have taken to Twitter to comment on the reports.

Some do not believe that Wilder needs to sign another midfielder in the summer. However, several have insisted that he would be an excellent signing – though they are not optimistic about their chances of tempting him away from Leeds.

Here is what some of the supporters make of the reports…
