Aston Villa hoping on Leeds’ relegation to sign this midfield star

  • Mar 10, 9:34

Steven Gerrard is reportedly urging his club Aston Villa to be ready this summer to go sign Kalvin Phillips from Leeds, if the Yorkshire club suffer relegation back to the Championship.

The report according to the Athletic states that internals talks at board level have taken place regarding the transfer of the England international midfielder, and no doubt Villa fans would welcome the 26-year-old.

Gerrard wants a major push to qualify for Europe next season and no doubt Kalvin Phillips’ experience and talent would elevate the Villa midfield.

The chances of signing Phillips would be difficult should Leeds stay up, but go down and it would be hard to see the fan favourite staying – especially so considering England’s upcoming World Cup campaign in December.
