Kalvin Phillips to be offered chance to return to Leeds but Whites won't meet Man City's asking price

Leeds United are keen on bringing back Kalvin Phillips at Elland Road if they secure Promotion to the Premier League.

  • Phillips could return to Leeds next season
  • The Whites want to sign their ex-player on loan
  • Man City want £30m for the midfielder

WHAT HAPPENED?

Phillips, who is currently on loan at West Ham United, will return to Manchester City at the end of the current season. Having failed to establish himself as a regular starter under Pep Guardiola, the English midfielder is likely to be sold permanently in the upcoming summer transfer window. The Cityzens are expected to demand a transfer in the region of £30m (€35m).

THE BIGGER PICTURE

The Whites are currently third in the Championship table, one point behind an automatic promotion slot. They will be looking to bring back their star midfielder on an initial loan deal as they are reluctant to meet City's price, according to the Daily Mail.

DID YOU KNOW?

Despite a switch in the January transfer window, Phillips has failed to adjust to life in London. He has struggled to find form with The Hammers and recently got embroiled in a controversy following flashing his middle finger towards his own fans amid heavy criticism.

WHAT NEXT FOR KALVIN PHILLIPS?

The 28-year-old could be next seen in action on Thursday as David Moyes' side take on newly crowned German champions Bayer Leverkusen in the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final fixture.
