Leeds United are gearing up for another season in the Championship with the Whites starting as promotion favourites following the news that Marcelo Bielsa is staying.
However, a lot can change in the coming weeks as the transfer window begins to take shape and one Leeds man attracting a lot of interest is midfielder Kalvin Phillips.
The academy graduate has established himself as a vital part of Bielsa’s team and enjoyed an outstanding previous campaign.
And, he doesn’t appear to have let the rumours surrounding his future impact him, with the Leeds Twitter account sharing an image of Phillips in the gym today for pre-season – which is notoriously tough under the Argentinian boss.

As you would expect, most Leeds fans responded positively to this update from the club and they urged the Whites not to allow Phillips to follow Jack Clarke out the door, with the winger poised to join Tottenham.
Here’s some of the reaction from the supporters…
