Leeds United contact Premier League star over summer move

Posted by

Leeds United have reportedly spoken with the agents of Manchester City midfielder Kavlin Phillips about a possible return to the team, according to the French outlet Sports Zone.

After rising through the ranks at Leeds, Phillips was a standout player under Marcelo Bielsa, which helped him get into the England team and get a lucrative transfer to Man City.

But there have been very few first-team opportunities for the England international as he is ranked below Rodri in the pecking order for the club.

In the summer of 2022, he completed the €49 million transfer, however he has only played in 31 games.

Phillips moved on loan to West Ham in January in an effort to guarantee his spot in the England team for Euro 2024, but the move hasn’t ignited his career yet.

The midfielder has endured a difficult time at the London Stadium since joining the Hammers in January.

He has been involved in some high profile blunders while playing for the club, most notably in his team’s 4-3 defeat against Newcastle United recently.

Kalvin Phillips back to Leeds United?

The player has received backlash for his performances for West Ham but manager David Moyes has offered him support in this difficult time.

However, the Hammers are still not willing to make his loan move permanent.

Given his limited opportunities at Man City, it is important to consider his future.

According to Sports Zone, Phillips’ agents have received a message from Leeds United, who are demanding an early return to the Premier League.

Leeds United face competition to sign Phillips

Two other unidentified English teams are keeping an eye on the midfield player’s predicament.

In order to revive his career, perhaps a move back to Leeds United may prove beneficial for the midfielder. After all, he played the best football of his career at Elland Road.

With no opportunities at Man City and West Ham not willing to sign him, a move to Leeds United is currently the best option for him. However, a lot depends on Leeds’ promotion back to the Premier League.

  1. All leeds fans love Kalvin, but if he has proved at 2 different clubs he is no longer good enough for the Prem, why would we want to buy him, not only will affect our FPP position but surely the money can be better spent in other areas. So my response is, let’s use of heads not our hearts.

  2. How can Man City justify asking a price of £40m when through their own action they have reduced his market value to half that. If they paid over the odds for him when they enticed him to leave Leeds then that was their bad judgement. Offer £15m because at the moment that is what his true market valuation is. If anyone is willing to pay more then caveat emptor!!
