Report reveals Kalvin Phillips price tag linked to Spurs if Leeds are relegated – Spurs Web
According to Daily mailLeeds could be forced to sell Kalvin Phillips for just £30m if the club suffer relegation from the Premier League, with Tottenham believed to be interested.
Leeds have endured a difficult campaign after making a bold return to the top flight last season, with the club currently sitting just two points above the drop zone.
The Whites recently enjoyed a four-game unbeaten streak under Jesse Marsch, who replaced Marcelo Bielsa in the dugout in February, but they have always been dragged towards danger after Burnley’s recent resurgence.
And while relegation is Leeds’ biggest concern at the moment, they will likely be thinking about the prospect of losing a handful of their best players ahead of next season.
The Daily Mail has claimed a number of Leeds stars could become available for transfer this summer – including England international Phillips – after writing relegation release clauses into their contracts.
The likes of Raphinha and Patrick Bamford are also named as squad members who could leave if the Yorkshire-based side fall in the Championship, with the report noting the players could fetch around £30m each.
The clauses could work in favor of Tottenham, who have reportedly been keeping tabs on Phillips this season.
the Telegraph recently reported that Antonio Conte is a fan of the 26-year-old midfielder and identified him as one of six potential additions the Italian has requested this summer.
Phillips has made 19 Premier League appearances this season and returned to the Leeds fold last month after two months out with a hamstring injury (transfer market).

Leeds’ potential relegation from the Premier League could present clubs with the opportunity to sign a handful of smart players for a small fee through these clauses. Phillips will certainly be one to watch in Tottenham’s case, given that the midfielder is still not up to snuff.
