The club has released a short statement on the midfielder's fitness after he was helped from the field in stoppage time of the final game of the season, having damaged himself with a slide tackle that earned him a caution.

A spokesperson said: "Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips picked up a shoulder injury in the closing stages of Sunday’s Premier League fixture with West Bromwich Albion.

"This is currently being treated conservatively, however, we remain confident he will be available for Euro 2020, if selected for the England squad."
