Leeds still being tipped to sell Kalvin Phillips on one condition

Kalvin Phillips could reportedly still leave Leeds in the near future despite his recent contract extension.

The 23-year-old penned a new deal that could keep him at Elland Road until the summer of 2024 earlier this week.

The Leeds Academy graduate joined the club when he was just 14 and has gone on to make almost 150 senior appearances.

Despite the positivity among fans, former Whites defender Danny Mills has outlined why the new contract does not mean an awful lot.

Mills told Football Insider: “What we’ve actually seen is that it’s great he’s nailed down.

“A contract doesn’t actually mean too much.

“If someone was to come in with a massive bid then obviously Leeds would be tempted to let him go.”

Mills, who played for Leeds between 1999 and 2004, believes that the Phillips deal shows good intent from his former club, but is still sceptical over the player’s future.

He added: “What it does show is intent from the player, intent from the football club, that everyone is happy.

“He wants to stay, they want to keep him, that is very important that he has shown that.”
