Blades Keeping Tabs On ‘Yorkshire Pirlo’ With £20m Battle Against Two Premier League Rivals Likely

Sheffield United are “monitoring” Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips, according to FourFourTwo. The magazine claims the Blades, Burnley and Wolves are all watching the 24-year-old in view to making a bid for the player.

It is said that £20m bids are being “prepared” for the midfield anchor man, who has been dubbed the “Yorkshire Pirlo” by some Leeds fans.

Phillips has been a regular starter in Marcelo Bielsa’s side this campaign, having made 31 appearances for the Championship club.

His form has even reportedly got the attention of England manager Gareth Southgate who was considering calling up the midfielder for the games against Italy and Denmark this month.

Phillips has been instrumental in guiding Leeds to the top of the Championship table, with the Whites seven points ahead of third position going into the final nine games of the season.

It remains to be seen whether the club will be promoted due to the suspension of football fixtures, but if they remain in the second tier, it’s likely they will have to sell Phillips in the summer.
