Kalvin Phillips: We're already moving forward under Rosler

Elland Road Revie Stand

Leeds United youngster Kalvin Phillips feels the club are heading in the right direction.

Leeds United youngster Kalvin Phillips explained in an interview for BBC Radio Leeds that he feels Uwe Rosler already has the club moving in the right direction.

Rosler has already over seen two positive signings for the first team with the arrivals of goalkeeper Charlie Horton and striker Lee Erwin.

Rosler is also likely to be working extremely hard on a number of other deals as he looks to develop a strong squad for the club’s first game of the season against Burnley.

“It’s not really been brilliant the last couple of years but he’s got us moving in the right direction with the signings and I think there are more similar signings that he might make and it reflects well for the first team,” he said.

Where do Leeds still need players?

There are question marks, which still exist over a couple of positions in the side.

Rosler could arguably use a new centre back to slot into the back four, which would give him a fresh option compared to Liam Cooper and Giuseppe Bellusci.

He could also arguably sign another winger to come into the squad on either side, which would have knock on effects for Sam Byram or Charlie Taylor, allowing them to revert to more natural positions at full-back.

What do new signings mean for players like Phillips?

There is an argument which suggests that a high volume of new signings has repercussions for the younger players at the club.

The youngsters were given opportunities to impress under Neil Redfearn last season and that should stay the same under Rosler, despite the new arrivals coming into the club.
