Liverpool are reportedly in advanced talks to sell Nat Phillips to Leeds United, with the 26-year-old set to be the latest name to leave Anfield.

According to journalist Rudy Galetti, the Reds are closing in on an agreement with the Championship side to sell the defender, with Liverpool set to receive as much as £10m for Phillips.

Leeds have been linked with the Bolton-born centre-back for the majority of the summer, yet discussions are now moving in the right direction for Liverpool to sell Phillips to the Elland Road side.

Praised by Scott Parker as an ‘exceptional’ player, Phillips could become a star in the Championship for Leeds, and leaving Liverpool this summer could be perfect for the former AFC Bournemouth loanee.

Moreover, £10m will be a healthy sum to sell Phillips for this window, with funds from this sale potentially going towards Liverpool making one or even two more signing before the closure of the transfer window.

Indeed, Liverpool are now perfectly aware that Phillips needs to leave Anfield if he is to get his career back on track, and a move to Leeds could be perfect for the English centre-back this window.

Phillips’ quality is clear for all to see, with the defender good enough to start for a good Premier League side if given the chance. Which is why a move to Leeds could be one of the deals of the summer this window.

The centre-back has already showed his quality in the Championship out on loan with Bournemouth, a move to Leeds could see Phillips take his quality to a whole new level.

With an ambitious manager on the touchline amongst a young squad bursting with potential, Phillips would be a welcome addition to Leeds’ side, and a player who could help the Whites return to the Premier League next year.
