Stoke City fans react to Leeds' reported Ryan Woods interest

Leeds United are reportedly interested in Stoke City midfielder Ryan Woods should they lose Kalvin Phillips.

A number of Stoke City fans have taken to Twitter to react to reports from The Sun on Sunday (7/7; page 61) that suggested that Leeds want Ryan Woods if they end up selling Kalvin Phillips this summer.

Phillips has been heavily linked with a move to Aston Villa during this window, with The Sun reporting that the Villans are prepared to pay £20 million for the 23-year-old, who is valued at £30 million by Leeds.


The Sun on Sunday (7/7; page 61) claimed at the weekend that Woods is one of the players that Marcelo Bielsa would want if Phillips does leave Elland Road during the final weeks of the transfer window - and it appears that many Stoke fans would be happy to see a deal done.

Sky Sports reported that the Potters paid £7 million to sign Woods after the midfielder's impressive spell with Brentford. However, he has so far failed to live up to that fee during his time with Nathan Jones' men.

Woods appears to have fallen somewhat out of favour since Jones took charge, and it would arguably not be a huge surprise if Stoke were open to offers for the 25-year-old.

And while there are some Stoke fans who have suggested that they still rate Woods, the majority appear to be in favour of their club looking to sell the Leeds target this summer after such a disappointing spell.
