Kalvin Phillips reaffirms Leeds United intentions amid ongoing transfer speculation

By Ed Mackey

Kalvin Phillips says he wants to be at Leeds United amid speculation regarding his future. He continues to be linked with a move away from Elland Road but has reaffirmed his intentions to stay with the club he has been at for 12 years.

It comes on the same day the Daily Mail reported that he, as well as a couple of his team mates, could be available for a cut price in the summer if the Whites are relegated. As a boyhood supporter of the club, the threat of dropping into the Championship will be an even greater motivation for Phillips heading into the final few games.

Speaking to BBC West Yorkshire Sport, the England international could not have been clearer about where he sees his future. He said: “I’ve made my intentions clear that I want to be at Leeds and I’ll focus on that until my contract ends.

“It’s always been something that I’m not really worried about too much. It’s always been something I’ve been confident in. There’s always going to be noise when you’re an England international and you’re playing for one of the biggest teams in the country.

“Until the end of the season, I’ll be happy at Leeds and I always will be.”

Phillips is certainly the player that is valued the highest at Elland Road as he is just like those who pack the stands every other weekend. The 30,000 plus fans home fans turn up to watch him and his team mates all once harboured dreams of playing for the club they adore and they have lived all the success he has enjoyed so far.

Phillips will be fully aware of just how important survival is to those supporters and, for that reason more than any other, he will be giving everything he’s got to give Leeds the best chance of securing their top-flight status. In spite of his comments, relegation would leave him at a real crossroads in his career.

He is undoubtedly in his prime years and, ahead of England’s involvement in the Qatar World Cup, he may feel as though he needs to be playing at the top level. The potential opportunity that could arise to play for a club competing in Europe would also surely be tempting.

Although, in the long term, he would absolutely love to be able to help Leeds return to the biggest stage after 19 years away from European football.
