Sheffield United line up £20m transfer move for Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips if they qualify for Europe – The Sun

CHRIS WILDER hopes going on a European tour will boost his chances of landing Kalvin Phillips.

The Sheffield United boss fancies the Leeds midfielder but faces stiff competition.

And he knows qualifying for the Champions League or Europa League would make Bramall Lane more attractive to the 24-year-old.

Phillips has signed a new deal at Elland Road and wants to reach the Premier League with Leeds.

But he will be one of the most wanted men around if the Whites fail to go up.

Wilder will have funds to buy Phillips, who would cost more than £20million if Leeds have to sell.

This club is in good shape, we're in a good place, and the supporters should really know that and appreciate what's going off

Wolves and Burnley are among the other clubs who would likely make an offer.

The Blades failed to take full advantage of Spurs' 2-1 loss at Chelsea, having to settle for a 1-1 home draw with Brighton.

Victory would have lifted Wilder's men a place to fifth.
