Report: Leeds United duo wanted by same top-flight club

According to Football Insider, Manchester United are interested in signing Leeds United duo Kalvin Phillips and Ben White.

It has been reported that Premier League giants United will wait until the summer of 2020 to make a move for 24-year-old midfielder Phillips and 22-year-old central defender White, who is on loan at the Whites from Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Red Devils are reported to have regularly watched the two players this season and have been impressed with them.

Keeping Kalvin Phillips and Ben White

White joined Leeds on loan from Brighton in the summer of 2019, and the Championship club will not have any say over his future.

The 22-year-old could be part of the Seagulls’ plans for next season, especially give the progress that the central defender is making at Elland Road this campaign.

As for Phillips, the 24-year-old is one of the best midfielders in the Championship, and if Leeds get promoted to the Premier League, then they simply must keep hold of him.
