​Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips has signed a new deal which will keep him with the club until 2024.


Tottenham Hotspur were one of several sides rumoured to be monitoring his situation at Elland Road, with the 23-year-old being named in the Championship Team of the Season for 2018/19. He has made a combined 83 league appearances for the Whites over the last two campaigns and has once again been handed a starring role this term.

Phillips was integral to ​Leeds' charge for promotion last time out, though Marcelo Bielsa's men fell apart in the playoff semi finals as ​Derby County booked their place at Wembley.


The club announced the news on their ​official website, mentioning the board had rejected numerous bids in excess of £20m for the academy graduate.


Bielsa and the Leeds hierarchy view Phillips as essential to their long-term progress, as well as the more immediate aim of sealing their ​Premier League return.


The Argentine coach has altered the youngster's position on the pitch, switching him to a deeper role, where he acts as a screen for the backline.

After their first six fixtures of the new ​Championship campaign the Yorkshiremen are third, three points behind leaders ​Swansea City.


That is the same position they finished in last year, a late-season collapse seeing ​Sheffield United leapfrog them into the final automatic promotion spot.
