Leeds United's Kalvin Phillips has become a top Aston Villa target this summer, and fears at Elland Road will be mounting once again.
The Sun recently noted that Villa would be willing to pay £15million for Phillips, whereas Leeds are demanding a deal of around £30million for their homegrown midfielder.
That seemed to make the rumours die down a little, but they've been sparked into life again by two reports released over the last 24 hours.
The first is that the Birmingham Mail claim that Phillips is 'expected' to join Aston Villa within days, but only once a fee is agreed between the two clubs.
That Leeds have lined up Sunjic will leave some worrying about an exit for Phillips, but the initial claims seem a little on the strange side.
Phillips rumours have died down of late, so to come back with that he's expected to join within a matter of days is a surprise, and it's tempered by the notion that the clubs have to agree a fee first, which is kind of obvious.
If anything, it's the Sunjic rumour which points more to Phillips leaving than a throwaway line about how a deal is expected, but one thing is for sure – it won't be happening at £15million, and Villa will surely have to break £20million to secure a deal.
