Leeds United Eyeing Kalvin Phillips’s Return

Leeds United are considering a move to bring back Kalvin Phillips to Elland Road if they secure an immediate return to the Premier League. Phillips, who spent 12 years at Leeds before joining Manchester City for £42 million in 2022, has struggled at City, spending 18 months on the bench and falling out of the England squad.

Phillips’ loan to West Ham in January has not gone as planned, with the midfielder making only three starts and facing criticism, including being labeled overweight by City manager Pep Guardiola upon his return from the 2022 World Cup. Despite this, Leeds sees an opportunity to offer Phillips a chance to rebuild his career. Leeds is prepared to offer around £30 million for Phillips, a fee they believe City would consider to offload the midfielder.

However, City’s interest in Hammers midfielder Lucas Paqueta could complicate matters, as they may want to use Phillips as a makeweight in a potential deal for Paqueta. While City’s hopes of using Phillips in a deal for Paqueta seem uncertain, Phillips’ future at City appears bleak, with no chance of him making the England squad for the upcoming Euro qualifiers.

Here is the highlight video of Kalvin Phillips’s skills that he showed while playing for Leeds United.
