Leeds United have made an offer for Calvin Phillips

Leeds United have made an offer for Calvin Phillips (29, West Ham).

“Leeds United have made a bid for Calvin Phillips,” Tribal Football reported on Monday (June 9).

Phillips is a central midfielder who joined the Leeds United youth team in 2010 and played for Leeds until 2022 before moving to Manchester City in July 2022.

During his time at Leeds, he anchored the Whites’ midfield with his physicality, work-rate, and clever play, despite his lack of height at 5-foot-10.

He was nicknamed the “Yorkshire Pirlo” during his time at Leeds for his ability to intercept passes as well as his powerful passing, which earned him a spot on the England squad for UEFA Euro 2020.

Phillips played 37 games in the EFL Championship (England’s second tier) in the 2019-2020 season, helping Leeds win promotion. He was an integral part of Leeds’ midfield in their first season in the Premier League in 2020-2021, making 29 appearances in the league.

His form dipped after his move to City. 카지노사이트 Injuries kept him out of action, and after the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, he showed a lack of self-care, becoming too overweight to train regularly. Some local media described him as “floundering”.

On January 26, Phillips left City on loan to West Ham United.

The move to West Ham wasn’t easy. The UK’s Daily Mail highlighted the conflict between Phillips and the fans that erupted after a game on March 30th.

“After the loan, Phillips appeared in eight games, mostly as a substitute, and in this game, he fouled Anthony Gordon, conceding the decisive penalty. After the game, Phillips boarded the team bus after refusing to take a photo with the away fans.”

That’s when the incident happened. “As Phillips stepped onto the team bus, one fan shouted, ‘You’re worthless,'” the media outlet reported. “Phillips looked back at the fan and raised his middle finger, prompting the fan to yell, ‘Get lost,'” the outlet reported.

One club that reached out to Phillips during his time of need was his hometown team, Leeds.

Leeds are currently in third place in the Championship (England’s second tier). Leicester City are in first place with 88 points, 토토사이트 추천 Ipswich Town are second with 87 points, and Leeds are in the promotion race in third with 86 points.

Tribal Football reports that “Leeds are keen to re-sign Phillips. Phillips is currently on loan at West Ham and is available at the end of the season. City are ready to sell Phillips for £25 million this summer.”
