Wolves want Phillips in January

The summer transfer window might have only just shut but Kalvin Phillips is already being linked with a move away in January. 

Alan Nixon, the Sun’s transfer expert, reported on Sunday that Wolves are now head of the queue for his servives after they failed with a late bid this summer.

However, Nixon also claims they won’t pay the £30m asking price and Leeds were very firm with that this summer.

Leeds are trying to get Phillips to agree a new contract and his agent, former Whites player Kevin Sharp, said that they would resume talks as soon as the window closed.

There’s still no agreement been reached, however, and if he doesn’t sign before next summer then things could change.

Phillips wants to play in the Premier League and if that doesn’t happen with Leeds next season then he might think it’s time to move on.

A new contract would give Leeds the power over his price but Phillips wants to be put in the same bracket as the club’s highest earners – Kiko Casilla and Patrick Bamford, who are on around £40,000-a-week.

Football Insider claimed that Leeds’ opening offer was just £10k-a-week, which shows how far the two parties are from each other.
