Tottenham return to Leeds for Phillips

  • Tottenham are in for yet another Leeds youngster

The squad selection for the tour came as welcome news to Leeds fans following the disappointing departures of Jack Clarke and Pontus Jansson, with Kalvin Phillips included in the travelling squad despite reports heavily linking him to a big money move to Premier League side Spurs.

The same story says that Spurs are facing competition from early front-runners Aston Villa, who are also keen on signing Phillips this summer.

Villa are understood to have had an initial £11 million bid for the Championship midfielder turned down, but have not given up hope of finally landing their man.

Tottenham have already spent close to £10m on Clarke but could fund a swoop for Phillips now too.

And they can give the promise of Champions League football - as well as the chance to develop under the eye of boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Even though they began the tournament as the number-one ranked side, England have not had a straightforward passage to the final. Back-to-back group-stage defeats by Sri Lanka and Australia left them on the verge of being eliminated.

There is further interest from the top flight in luring Phillips away from Elland Road.

Newcastle, Bournemouth and Wolves are also all said to have an interest in signing Phillips this summer.

Working in Leeds' favour is the fact that Phillips, who was born in Leeds, is a lifelong fan of the club and thought to be unwilling to push for a move away.

The Yorkshire club have jetted out to Australia for a pre-season tour that will see them first face Premier League giants Manchester United and then take on A-League side Western Sydney Wanderers.

And Leeds are confident he will stay put, even though their opening offer has been rejected.
