Had West Brom offered £10 million for Kalvin Phillips in the summer, there is arguably a good chance that many Leeds supporters would have given their backing to Andrea Radrizzani if he had sold the midfielder.
Phillips was an important part of the Leeds side last season, but the academy graduate was struggling to kick on in the same way that many expected Ronaldo Vieira to.
But Marcelo Bielsa clearly saw something in the 23-year-old as he has arguably looked a completely different player this season. Phillips is, in many people's eyes, more important to the balance of the team than any other member of the squad.
So it is not difficult to understand why plenty of Leeds fans have been left perplexed after a report from The Sun on Sunday (09/12; page 57) suggested that West Brom were eyeing a move for Phillips next summer.
Several of the Elland Road faithful on social media cannot understand why Phillips would want to swap Leeds for West Brom after having such a stunning season in Bielsa's side.
Nor can some of the supporters get their head around the idea that Leeds would be happy to sell Phillips for just £10 million as many feel that he should be worth significantly more.
Here is what some of the Leeds supporters make of the links with the Baggies...
Phillips will not go to WBA, of course. It will be a step down in his career. A blatant attempt to unsettle our players, it is. #LUFC— Roar Gustavsen (@roagust3) December 9, 2018
If you’re a Leeds fan and would happily sell KP in January, consider supporting a different team ♂️— Leeds All Over (@LeedsAllOver) December 9, 2018
I wouldn’t even sell him for £20m he’s one of our own— ryan godfrey (@Ryan_Godfrey95) December 9, 2018
I'd consider Saiz or alioski both hsve been sub par but I'd be devastated if we sold Philips— samuel gallagher (@samuelgallaghe2) December 9, 2018
If we get £50 million for him then the club may have to consider that.— We All Love Leeds (@Leeds______) December 9, 2018
