Kalvin Phillips will again be a target for the Hammers when the summer window reopens but it seems the defensive midfielder remains keen to stay at Leeds.

And his agent Kevin Sharp has cleared up some misapprehensions among fans as to what went on in the transfer window when the Hammers tried to sign him.

Many believed because they only heard of as bid on the final day that was the ONLY bid but Sharp has made it clear that was not the case.

The player has since made it clear that he wants to remain at the club despite interest from ourselves and the likes of Liverpool

The Hammers explained to Claretandhugh that they tried to get him away in the winter knowing that various big clubs would be moving in the summer.

According to the Daily Star the Hammers made three bids for the England player and Sharp confirmed that when saying: “Kalvin was pleased that Leeds turned those offers down.”

But in  statement that will disappoint the Hammers he added: “He has never asked to leave Leeds in all his time with the club and has no intention of doing that now or in the summer.

“But I understand the offer that was turned down would have been a record for both buying and selling clubs.”

  1. I have lost all respect for Moyes in terms of transfer dealings. What in the world was he even thinking about, we needed a CB, and a Striker. We have Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek. I cannot believe we offered this amount of money for a player who is completely over rated even by his own fans. I am really worried what Moyes is thinking of as he is certainly not going to improve us. When we play Leeds I think about Rafinha, I think about Dallas but I never worry about Phillips. Moyes spent 70m last summer, he has wasted half of it and if Zouma is injured again then he should have signed the Fiorentina CB which alot of fans wanted. Kral and Vlasic have been extremely poor and I am beginning to worry what Moyes sees in a player any more when he continually thinks players like Fredericks have something to offer. I just cannot get over what he is doing, not one person could have thought he would even consider buying Phillips never mind spend 50 million on him. Why was he not focused on signing a CB and Striker instead of wasting his time on this. Absolutely scandleous in my opinion and I for one do not want Phillips anywhere near our club. Seemeingly he ridiculed our club too.

  2. He is a very good player but if he has no interest in coming then don’t waste the time, not sure how often we see this at our club bidding on players that don’t want to play for us, if I was cynical would say it is deliberate by the board as they can make these offers that make great headlines knowing they won’t be accepted. Bissouma is better than Phillips if we want a defensive midfielder go for him as he can also replace Rice when the club sell him.

    Or get Newman to scout a young player from overseas that will cost less and is hungry. Phillips has also started to become injury prone.
