Charlton Athletic are keen to tie down goalkeeper Dillon Phillips to an improved deal, according to London News Online.
They report that the club have opened discussions with Phillips over a contract extension, with his current deal set to expire in the summer of 2021.
Along with Naby Sarr and Alfie Doughty, Charlton are keen to keep a hold of the 24-year-old as they see him as an important part of the club’s first-team plans.
The stopper came through the club’s academy, joining the Addicks at eight-years-old.

After spending time on loan at Whitehawk, Bishop’s Stortford and Cheltenham early on his career, he went on to make his first-team debut for Charlton in the 2016-17 season.
Phillips then established himself as Charlton’s first-choice goalkeeper last term, making a total of 35 appearances as the club achieved promotion back to the Championship.
That has continued this campaign. Phillips has started every league game this season for the Addicks, keeping a total of six clean sheets in that time.
He has also made the most saves out of any goalkeeper in the Championship, with an average of 3.4 per game.
With just one year remaining on his current deal, Phillips could walk away from the club for free next summer.
Charlton will want to prevent that happening at all costs, as he is currently an extremely important member of the first-team squad.
At the age of 24, Phillips also has many years ahead of him as a goalkeeper.
