Blow for Premier League clubs as Phillips declares Leeds loyalty

Kalvin Phillips insists he wants to stay at Leeds United for his whole career.

The midfielder has been a target for a number of Premier League clubs, including Wolves, Burnley, Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa.

But the 24-year-old is loving life at Elland Road.

Speaking to FourFourTwo magazine, said: "I want to spend my career at Leeds and see the club doing well in the Premier League.

"I'm just enjoying every minute right now."

On an England call-up, Phillips added: "All I can do is stay fit and carry on doing what I'm doing.

"I know the bar is incredibly high for international footballers but I feel like I'm on the border of that.

"Once Leeds have become an established Premier League side again, I'll be competing with the best.

"Hopefully I can do well enough to convince Gareth Southgate that I deserve a spot in his squad."
