Leeds are more likely to consider bids for Kalvin Phillips next summer after rejecting a £50m offer from West Ham this month, according to reports in the English media.
Liverpool, Manchester United, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are also thought to be keen on the England international but the Hammers tried to beat the competition with their sizeable offer.
However, Leeds are not interested in selling Phillips in January, although they are aware of the 26-year-old’s desire to play Champions League football.
The player will have two years remaining on his contract at Elland Road by the end of this season and the Yorkshire club will probably feel they would still get a good amount for him if they decide to cash in during the summer.
Whether Liverpool would be prepared to splash out on Phillips, it is up for debate. Manager Jurgen Klopp is likely to be interested in strengthening his midfield options but the Leeds star does prefer playing as a lone holding midfielder; a position which is currently filled by Fabinho.
