Leeds, Aston Villa & Kalvin Phillips
As confirmed by the Mirror’s David Anderson, Aston Villa have offered Leeds United 11 million pounds for defensive midfielder Kalvin Phillips.
23-year-old Phillips is under contract with Leeds until 2021.
Last season, he turned out 42 times for Marcelo Biesla in the Championship.
Phillips scored once and chipped in with three assists.
According to David Anderson, Leeds want Aston Villa to almost triple their offer for Phillips, as the Whites want 30 million pounds.
