Phillips has been heavily linked with Aston Villa, who are reportedly making one last push to sign him.
However, Leeds are desperate to keep hold of Phillips out of Villa’s clutches and are now prepared to offer him a new contract.
Phillips is set to become one of Leeds’ top earners, and is said to be on the verge of committing his future at Elland Road.
If Phillips did pen a new contract at Leeds it would be a real statement of ambition from Marcelo Bielsa’s side and surely their biggest move of the summer.
Phillips is Leeds’ most important player, and is integral to Bielsa’s side.
Phillips plays such an important function for Leeds, as he sits in front of their defence and dictates the pace of their play.
If the Whites were to lose their academy graduate he would be practically impossible to replace with someone of the same quality.
However, it seems that Leeds fans could have reason to celebrate, as Phillips committing his future to the club would be a massive boost going into the new campaign.
