According to The Sun, Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips is being targeted by Jamaica as the wait for an England cap goes on.
It’s claimed that Phillips qualifies for Jamaica through his father, and has been offered an international future with them.
Jamaica have allegedly asked for permission to hold talks with Phillips, and view him as a key player for their future.
This leaves the 24-year-old with a major dilemma, as England boss Gareth Southgate has been following his progress in recent times.
Phillips has starred under Marcelo Bielsa, emerging as one of the top English midfielders around – and some Leeds fans have backed him for England.
The midfielder’s former Leeds teammate Kemar Roofe admitted last month that he is considering playing for Jamaica, as they provide him with the best chance of playing in the World Cup.
Phillips and Roofe could now join forces for the Caribbean side, with Jamaica really gearing up for a push to reach the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Phillips’s club future appears to be settled with Leeds following promotion, but his international future is now up in the air having received this unexpected offer.
