Leeds are fighting relegation in the Premier League this season and sit seven points clear of the bottom-three heading into the run-in.
There’s also the future of both Phillips and Raphinha to sort heading into the summer, with both entering the final two years of their contracts at Elland Road.
As per The Mirror’s David Anderson, Phillips has instructed that he’s willing to sign a new contract at Elland Road in the summer.
That’s despite growing speculation surrounding clubs bidding for him ahead of 2022/23.
How much is Kalvin Phillips worth?
Less than £60m
More than £60m
According to reports from The Times, Aston Villa and West Ham United are in the race to sign Phillips in the summer.
The 26-year-old has made 12 appearances in the Premier League this season, having missed four months with a hamstring injury.
This would be a huge boost for Leeds heading into 2022/23.
You’d think that the delay between now and the summer will be down to Phillips waiting to see if Leeds retain their Premier League status, but it’s still good news.
It appears that if Leeds are a Premier League side, Phillips will be sticking around and signing on beyond 2024.
In a summer where it looks like they might lose Raphinha, it’s a massive shot in the arm for Jesse Marsch.
Fingers crossed that potential contract kills to talk of a move to Villa or West Ham.
