Man Utd are reportedly keeping close tabs on Leeds United’s pair of Ben White and Kalvin Phillips.

Both players have been established for the Whites this campaign so far. Leeds-born Phillips has been a member of the senior team since 2014, making 158 matches while scored 11 goals and nine assists so far. Valued at €11 million according to Transfermarkt, the 23-year-old has featured in all games for Marcelo Bielsa’s side, netting against Birmingham and assisting versus Barnsley.

White signed Leeds United on loan from Brighton and Hove Albion this campaign and has featured in all of the club’s matches so far. He is valued at €2.5 million according to Transfermarkt.

Football Insider claims that the Red Devils are scouting both Phillips and White. The report also claims that the former’s current deal has a release clause that can be triggered in the summer provided Leeds United are unable to reach the Premier League. The Whites are currently third in the Championship table, just two points behind leaders West Brom.

Both White and Phillips have done well for Leeds so far, but a transfer to Old Trafford will lessen their playing time.
