Leeds academy graduate Kalvin Phillips is set set to sign a new three-year deal with the club, according to a report.
The Yorkshire Evening Post claim the 20-year-old is on the verge of extending his stay with the club that has nurtured him through their youth system.
The youngster made his debut in the senior side in the 2014-15 season and managed a further 10 appearances during 2015-16.
His only goal to date came during a 2-1 defeat to Cardiff at Elland Road on his home debut for the club.
Phillips will be hoping to continue his phenomenal rise through the Leeds set-up, having previously been appointed captain of both the development squad as well as the Under-18s in his earlier years.
Newly-appointed boss Gary Monk has explained to the Yorkshire Evening Post his desire to keep the team’s emerging star.
“Once I speak and sit down with them and give them a vision of what I would like to do with them and the team going forwards, hopefully that is enough to keep them here,” Monk said.
The youngster didn’t start the final 2015-16 game of the season away to Preston but a change of manager could reignite his much-talked about potential.
