Struijk had arrived at Elland Road from Dutch giants Ajax in the summer of 2018, when he had joined Leeds’ Under-23s side. He came into the club’s first- only in 2020 and he’s been there since (as per Transfermarkt).

Nice easy one to start off with, what number does Phillips wear for Leeds United?

For the Leeds first-team, he has now made 22 appearances in all competitions for Marcelo Bielsa’s men, scoring one goal too.

The 21-year-old Struijk has made 15 Premier League appearances this season and while he has played at centre-back, he has also deputised in defensive midfield for the side. He has picked up a rating of 6.81 and only six Leeds players have picked up better ratings than him.
This shows that he is an important part of the Leeds side and because of that, they can’t afford to let him go.
