Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips is reportedly keen to sign a new contract at Elland Road despite interest from Manchester United.
The 26-year-old’s future has recently been the subject of much speculation, with a number of clubs, including Aston Villa, Liverpool and Newcastle United, said to be interested in his services.
Meanwhile, a recent report claimed that Man United had identified the England international as a leading target ahead of this summer’s window.
However, according to The Sun, Phillips is hoping to sign a new long-term contract with Leeds, which would include a substantial rise on his current £38,000-a-week salary.
The report claims that the midfielder has been impressed by Jesse Marsch since the American’s arrival as head coach in February, and he is ‘determined to commit to his boyhood side’.
Phillips, who has two years left to run on his current deal at Elland Road, has been restricted to just 17 appearances in all competitions this season due to injury.
The Englishman has recently been back in the fold, though, making the bench against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the middle of March before featuring against Southampton and Watford this month.
Man United are likely to move for at least one new midfielder this summer, and the club have also been strongly linked with Lazio‘s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
