On the latest One Leeds Fan Channel YouTube video, Connor McGilligan has been discussing the latest in transfer rumours surrounding the Yorkshire club.
Would you be open to Phillips leaving this summer?
The report indicates Pep Guardiola’s side are eyeing up a cut-price deal for the Leeds man with a reported £26m bid in the offing as City look to replace Fernandinho.
Discussing the 25-year-old’s future with the Whites, McGilligan had the following to say on the matter amid the latest links to Manchester City.
(5:50) “But Kalvin Phillips, it doesn’t matter if we’re seventh/eighth in the league, or if we’re sixth in the league he’s going to be touted by top, top clubs at this moment in time.
“He is now a stone wall, a mainstay in that England side, which is going to find him admirers from across the globe, really. Not only club football, but international football you’re getting so many eyes on Kalvin Phillips now he’s played in a Euro 2020 final at this moment in time as well.
“And he’s a top-class operator, and he stepped up again, every single season he gets better and better and you don’t think he can do but I think the experience with England has helped him massively.”
TIF Thoughts on Phillips’ future with Leeds…
We completely agree with McGilligan in playing regularly now for England will have only increased the attention from other clubs on the Yorkshire ace.
However, the report to emerge suggesting City are interested in a potential £26m bid for the midfielder would, in our opinion, be a total kick in the teeth for Leeds.
