Aston Villa are said to be considering Conor Hourihane for Leeds United’s Kalvin Phillips, but there is a lot of scepticism about the reports.
Aston Villa fans simply cannot believe that Conor Hourihane will be offered to Leeds United any time soon.
The report suggests that Villa would be willing to offer Leeds a chance to land Hourihane.
However, Villa fans have laughed off the suggestions that the central midfielder could leave.

Madness. If it were true, which it clearly isn’t as he has just renewed.— James Merry (@JamesMerry17) July 17, 2019
Hourihane has just signed a new long-term contract with Villa, and has had an important part to play under Dean Smith so far.
It does indeed seem highly unlikely that Hourihane would be traded for Phillips, even though Villa are very keen on the Leeds man.
Leeds have so far fended off interest in Phillips, and there seems to be increasing optimism that the enforcer will still be at Elland Road next season.
