Leeds United fans on Twitter are fearing the worst after it was revealed by Football Insider that Kalvin Phillips has rejected Leeds’ contract offer.
It was reported last week that the Whites were readying a new deal for the 23-year-old, but now it seems that he has turned their offer down.
Football Insider stated that the Yorkshire club’s offer was a long way off of what Phillips was expecting.
Supporters on social media are now fearful that this means their star man will be leaving Elland Road this summer as Aston Villa have been pursuing him for weeks now.
Phillips is certainly good enough to play in the Premier League after earning a spot in the EFL Championship Team of the Season last term, but it remains to be seen whether or not he will leave his boyhood club.

Please, for the love of god just give Kalvin Phillips whatever he wants in this contract. I can handle losing Jannson, disappointed he’s going but we’ve lost worse. Now if Phillips goes, I’ll genuinely cry and fall into a pit of depression

Reports Phillips has rejected a contract offer. Can’t help but think here we go again. Give the player a low ball offer, they know they’re worth more so reject it, we sell them and spin it that the player wanted out etc so the fans turn on them. Can see it from a mile off.
