Leeds ready to tie down Phillips

5th July 2019, 19:59 by Tom Hill

Leeds United plan to offer midfielder Kalvin Phillips a new contract, according to reports in the English media.

The academy product has been at Elland Road since 2010 and graduated from the club's academy in 2014.

Phillips has since made 128 appearances for the Whites but it was last season that saw his stock rise.

The 23-year-old flourished under Marcelo Bielsa's management and his new role in the centre of midfield allowed Leeds to progress towards the play-off semi-finals.

Aston Villa continue to be linked with a big-money move this summer but Phillips is now set for fresh contract talks.

Journalist Phil Hay has confirmed the talks but there is no guarantee he will remain at Elland Road.

Phillips will not be joined at Thorp Arch by team-mate Lewie Coyle after he moved out on loan once again after returning to Fleetwood Town for a third spell.

The right-back has joined Joey Barton's side on a six-month deal and his days at Leeds appear to be over.
