Kevin Campbell believes Kalvin Phillips might be tempted by Newcastle

Kevin Campbell believes Newcastle have a good chance of signing Leeds star Calvin Phillips this summer.

The England star has been highly coveted for the past two seasons, and clubs such as Man UTT, Liverpool, West Ham and Newcastle are expected to continue his services when the transfer window opens.

“I think he would be tempted by Newcastle. The numbers could be dangerous for a player like Calvin Phillips. He is a strong big player, an England international and he is getting better every season.” Campbell said football inside.

“Leeds are going to be desperate to keep him, but I’m not sure if they will. I really think if Leeds want to rebuild, they have to take advantage of some of their players. They might have to do some selling to strengthen their squad. Their team is nowhere near strong enough. They are They are nowhere near as strong as they should be.”

West Ham failed to offer a January deadline to sign the 26-year-old as Leeds were determined to keep him at least until the end of the season as they found themselves in a tight spot in the relegation battle.

The cost of ‘The Yorkshire Pirlo’ is expected to be approximately £60m.
