We all love fixture release day don’t we?

It distracts us from work as we spend hours wondering which away games to go to and cursing the powers that be for making us go to Middlesbrough on a Wednesday night, and it distracts us from the prospect of losing one of our key players in the transfer window. However, it seems the two stories don’t have to be mutually exclusive.

Kalvin Phillips was such a key part in Leeds’s march to the playoffs last season, playing 46 games across all competitions both as a centre back and defensive midfielder. And if they are to make another push for promotion this year, then he’ll hope to recreate the form that made him so vital to them. However, plenty of news reports this summer have been linking him with a move to Aston Villa, with reports of a £14m set to be launched.

So when the midfielder spoke to the media about his thoughts on the fixture being released, there was one quote in particular that got Leeds United fans stirring with excitement.

Could this be a sign that Phillips is committing his future, well immediate future anyway to Leeds United? These fans seemed to think so, they couldn’t contain themselves with excitement. Whilst this quote doesn’t guarantee that he’s staying, I certainly wouldn’t want to be the one to tell them that.
