David Norris is excited for Leeds United’s future after it was revealed Kalvin Phillips is not interested in leaving Elland Road.
Following an impressive first-ever season in the Premier League, Phillips has been one of England’s biggest stars at Euro 2020.
The central midfielder made 30 first team appearances last term, with his eye-catching form resulting in him nailing down a place in Gareth Southgate’s preferred starting line-up at the international tournament.
Is Kalvin Phillips right to commit his future to Leeds?
While Phillips’ fine form will have pleased Leeds fans, it has left some fearing one of their prized assets could be interested in joining a side challenging for silverware.
But Phillips’ agent, Kevin Sharp, has confirmed Phillips is not interested in leaving his hometown club.
Former Leeds midfielder Norris, speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, is buoyed by the admission.
Norris said: “I think that’s massive and coming from an agent is probably even better because it’s normally the agent causing the trouble and trying to get the player to move so they can make their money.
“It’s stronger reinforcement than even the player or the club coming out.
“I think it would be ridiculous money that no-one is quite ready to pay that Leeds would want. They don’t need to sell so I can’t see him going.”
