Kalvin Phillips: Leeds United midfielder signs new five-year deal


Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips has recently signed a fresh five-year contract at Elland Road.
Aston Villa were connected with Phillips although the 23-year-old has dedicated his potential to Leeds with a bargain that ties him for his boyhood club until the summer of 2024.
“Within the span of the summer transfer window, Phillips was subject to high profile interest from many of Premier League sides, with the club rebuffing multiple supplies in excess of #20m,” the club said in a statement.
“The team maintained throughout that Phillips would not be sold, with the midfielder being key to plans for the future, with the immediate aim of securing top flight football.
“As a team, we are thrilled that Kalvin shares the exact same vision and potential for Leeds United, that has been demonstrated by committing his long-term future to the Whites.”
Phillips has produced 148 appearances for United since breaking into the first team throughout the 2014-15 season.
The defensive midfielder was called from the Sky Bet Championship team of the season for the 2018-19 effort, after making 46 appearances in all competitions.
Phillips has featured in every game up to now this season Leeds, assisting the side of Marcelo Bielsa to third in the Championship table behind Swansea City and Charlton.
