Leeds United head coach Neil Redfearn speaks highly of Kalvin Phillips.

Leeds United head coach Neil Redfearn has predicted a bright future for midfielder Kalvin Phillips in a press conference today, according to the club’s official Twitter page.

Phillips progressed through the famous Leeds academy and was handed his first-team debut by Redfearn earlier this month.

The 19-year-old made his debut for the Whites against Wolverhampton Wanderers away from home at Molineux in the Championship.

The youngster then featured against Cardiff City at Elland Road, but he was left out of the team which lost 2-0 at home to Norwich City.

Phillips has scored one goal and created one chance in two Championship appearances, while having a pass accuracy of 76%.

The central midfielder has won three of the 10 tackles he has attempted and one of the three headers he has challenged.

Leeds are currently 15th in the Championship table with 52 points from 43 matches and are set for another season in the second tier of English football.

The West Yorkshire outfit will take on Charlton Athletic away from home at The Valley on Saturday.
