Peterborough Director of Football Barry Fry has exclusively told Football FanCast that he expects Kalvin Phillips and Patrick Bamford to sign new deals at Leeds, irrespective of Marcelo Bielsa’s future.
The pair have been a key part of the Whites’ successful campaign back in the Premier League, and are set to be rewarded with bumper long-term contracts.
Recent reports believe that the Elland Road outfit are expected to offer the duo fresh terms in the coming weeks, and Fry doesn’t think that uncertainty over manager Bielsa’s future will affect their decision.
Bielsa’s contract in South Yorkshire runs out at the end of this season, and he hasn’t yet decided whether he’ll stay on for a fourth season at Elland Road.
“I have been a great admirer of Leeds from day one, Fry told Football FanCast. Obviously they will want to keep them two players, they’re a big club, huge club and I don’t see a problem with the salary being turned down.
“I don’t think it will matter to them whether the manager stays or not, saying that, they will want the manager to stay because they enjoy the style of football that the manager demands of them.”
