I know that things haven’t been going too well at Leeds in recent days.

First you had the defeat against Stoke City in the Carabao Cup, followed by losing a game to Swansea City despite dominating the statistics. Now we’ve got the international break, so we’ve got to wait a long time before we can try and put things right on the pitch.

That’s on the pitch though, let’s focus on what’s happening off the pitch, because there was some fantastic news that came out last night. Kalvin Phillips and the club are reportedly close to signing a new deal, according to CEO Angus Kinnear speaking on West Yorkshire Sport yesterday.

Despite rumours circulating all summer that he could be on his way to Aston Villa, or even Tottenham Hotspur, we managed to get through the summer with him remaining at Elland Road. Now it looks as if we could be set to see him stay a White for many years to come, and given how crucial he is to how Leeds play under Marcelo Bielsa, the more years the merrier.

So how did Leeds fans react when they heard the news? Well, I’ll let you figure that out for yourself.
