Leeds United fans on Twitter are buzzing after it was finally confirmed that Kalvin Phillips would be staying at the club.

It was also reported that the midfielder will be sitting down with the higher-ups at Elland Road to discuss a new contract.

The 23-year-old has been at the centre of loads of speculation this summer. He has been linked with no fewer than five Premier League clubs as Tottenham, Aston Villa, Bournemouth, Norwich and Sheffield United have all apparently shown an interest in his services.

You can understand why these top teams have been chasing his signature as well. He was a vital component in Marcelo Bielsa’s squad last season as the Whites finished third in the Championship.

The midfielder started 44 league games last term and his good performances earned him a spot in the EFL Team of the Season.

Understandably a number of supporters were absolutely buzzing with this update.

This latest move brought about a sense of optimism that is rarely seen amongst the Elland Road faithful as they even praised Victor Orta and Andrea Radrizzani.

Leeds fans have been let down by this transfer window as two of their key players have been sold, but one fan believes this is the best news United fans have received all summer.
