Kalvin Phillips’ agent breaks silence on Man Utd transfer interest and Leeds United contract

  • by

Leeds United have been offered a major boost in their bid to retain the services of Kalvin Phillips amid transfer interest from Manchester United.

The likes of Man Utd, Manchester City and Liverpool have been linked with transfer moves for the England star.

Man Utd have been linked with a GBP60million bid for Phillips, but Leeds have reportedly since decided to tie the midfielder down to a new contract.

And now Phillips’ agent Kevin Sharp has spoken to the Daily Telegraph and told the media outlet that he expects a ‘positive outcome’ for Leeds.

“I can only see a positive outcome. Kalvin’s desire is to stay at Leeds and there is a real willingness from all sides to make it happen,” he told the Telegraph.

Sharp has previously spoken about his client’s desire to stay in Yorkshire.

He told the I earlier this year: “Before Kalvin signed his last contract, we had good interest so we sat down and explored all the pros and cons. His desire was never to leave, it was to be rewarded and stay and play for the team he supported as a kid.

“Within the contract he signed in September 2019, we included provisions within it for if Leeds reached the Premier League, so it’s all set up for the top flight.

“We knew it was a bit of a gamble, but we knew Leeds would get there under (Marcelo) Bielsa and obviously they did. There may be clubs who are actually looking at Kalvin now because the more successful you are – playing for England in big tournaments – naturally breeds interest.

“But Kalvin is happy at Leeds and has no desire to move whatsoever. It’s more a case of ‘carry on what you’re doing for club and country’.”
