Liverpool reportedly expect Nat Phillips to leave the club before the closure of the transfer window this summer.
The centre-back has been strongly linked with a move away from Liverpool all summer, with Leeds United one of many clubs who have been interested in signing Phillips.
However, the defender is yet to leave Liverpool, though there is an expectation around the club that Phillips will depart on a permanent deal at some point in the coming weeks.
Lauded by Scott Parker as an ‘exceptional’ player, Liverpool urging the player to leave could accelerate a transfer, with Phillips himself seemingly keen on beginning a new chapter in his career.

However, with only two weeks of the window left to go, Liverpool are slowly running out of time to offload Phillips, which could create a problem heading into the new season.
Liverpool have to try every trick to sell Phillips this summer
Phillips still being at Liverpool might surprise some fans this window, and with time running out, the Reds now have to try every trick they can to offload the defender.
The 26-year-old is at a stage in his career where he needs to be a regular elsewhere, and Liverpool have to ensure such a move happens this summer.
As a result, the Reds must try all they can to sell Phillips, with the player himself likely keen on leaving Anfield if it means becoming a permanent regular at another club.
