Hi Ed002,

Rumours today that Man City interested in Kalvin Phillips: any truth to this please?

As a CDM woukd he be a replacement or back up for Rodri?

Many thanks as always!

{Ed002's Note - Kalvin Phillips (DM) a financially more viable option to Declan Rice and Manchester United have enquired in the past and may maintain that interest when a new manager arrives in the summer. An ex-PL player acting as a scout for Real Madrid has watched the player on more than one occasion. Manchester City see as an option to replace Fernandinho. West Ham enquired and made a tentative offer to no avail in January. Aston Villa have enquired - it seems very unlikely. An enquiry from Newcastle may be followed up but I suspect the player would not be keen. Whilst he has the stupid haircut that Liverpool look for in recruits, I am not aware of any approach by Liverpool or Arsenal to Leeds at this time. Leeds will resist selling and look for a new contract. I expect a new contract will be agreed but he won't stay at Leeds forever.
