Leeds United rumours: Whites plot imminent midfielder raid, Target undergoes PL medical

Leeds United fans will be hoping that Kalvin Phillips gets the nod when England come up against the Czech Republic on Tuesday evening.

The 25-year-old has started both of the Three Lions’ Euro 2020 matches so far, putting in a man of the match display against Croatia before labouring a little alongside his teammates in Friday’s 0-0 stalemate against Scotland.

But former Elland Road defender Danny Mills has argued that he shouldn’t be dropped this evening.

"We are seeing what normally happens in a championship," he said on Sky Sports News.

"Very rarely does a team go all the way through winning every single game, being absolutely exceptional from start to finish.

"There are no really poor teams any more in these Championships, everybody has a fighting chance and if they perform and if they play well as Scotland did then on any given day they can give anybody a really good game.

"Scotland were maybe ten or 15 per cent above their usual, England were ten or 15 per cent below and of course you get a 30 per cent swing and that's the problem.

"Long term it's not a huge problem for England.

"Yes, I am sure there will be tweaks and they will try and address the situation but you can't go from Kalvin Phillips being absolutely outstanding against Croatia to suddenly why is he playing, why is he being picked?

"There's just no rhyme or reason for that at all."
