I’m Not Leaving Leeds United – Phillips Tells Rangnick

Published:

Leeds United midfielder, Kalvin Phillips has said he is happy at the club and hopes to get a new contract.

He said this amid interest from Manchester United, who are said to be in pursuit of the midfielder with Ralf Rangnick a huge admirer of the 26-year-old.

Rangnick was said to have identified midfield as an area of weakness during his interview at Old Trafford and told the club to look into signing Phillips from Leeds United.

Rangnick also wants Manchester United to bring in either Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham or RP Leipzig’s Amadou Haidara.

It has also been reported that United will prioritize a move for Phillips over Declan Rice, who is valued at £100m by West Ham United.

The England international, who is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury, says he only wants to return to the pitch with Leeds.

“Going from Championship to Premier League to England Player of the Year, it was an eye-opener and made me realize, ‘I can do this,”’ Phillips told the Mail.

“Everything came together, the hard work taking me where I wanted to be. If I carry on doing that, who knows where I’ll end up.

“I just want to focus on getting back fit. But I speak to the owner regularly. I want a new contract. I’m very happy here.”
