Football Insider have shared an update on Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips and a possible new Elland Road contract.
The Lowdown: Manchester United links
Rumours have emerged in recent days regarding Manchester United’s interest in Phillips.
The Daily Star believe Old Trafford bosses have abandoned their interest in West Ham’s Declan Rice and will target Phillips as a result.
Phillips, 25, is under contract until 2024, but it appears as if the Whites want to tie him down to a new deal over the coming months.
How much money should Leeds offer Phillips?
The Latest: Source shares new update
Football Insider shared a story on Tuesday afternoon, where Alan Hutton gave his thoughts on Phillips’ future.
Within their report however, they shared the latest from a Leeds source, who told the site that talks of a new Whites contract are at an early stage.
Interestingly, they also added that Leeds, led by Andrea Radrizzani, want a new deal completed before January 1.
The Verdict: Next few months key
It seems as if Leeds want to put to bed rumours of their star man leaving by the New Year to avoid any uncertainty during the next transfer window, so the coming months will be key.
The holding midfielder only signed a new Elland Road contract in 2019, however, he has taken his game to the next level over the past two years.
