Leeds born and bred

Kalvin Phillips was born in Leeds and has risen through the ranks of the club’s youth system.

24-years-old he is most often deployed as a defensive midfielder but can also fill in as a centre back when needed.

He has recently won his first England cap due to his strong form in the Championship last season and his strong start to life in the Premier League.

In total he’s made 185 senior appearances for Leeds United despite his young age.
