The Whites have been linked with a host of players already this summer, and expected to strengthen in some key areas as they look to continue their progress in becoming a top tier mainstay once again.

Meanwhile, England are gearing up for their second group match of Euro 2020 on Friday, and will be looking for another win when they take on fierce rivals Scotland at Wembley Stadium.

Whites midfielder Kalvin Phillips starred in England's 1-0 win over Croatia last weekend, and ex-manager Harry Redknapp has been singing the 25-year-old's praises after his stellar show. The former QPR and Spurs boss said: “[I was] Very impressed!

“Like lots of people, I hadn’t watched him that carefully. He’s a player who I’ve seen play – I watch every game on TV – but he wasn’t a player like a Phil Foden who you look at and think, ‘My god!’

“Leeds have been a little bit under the radar and had a good season, but just how good he was the other day, I thought he was fantastic. It was a real top class performance.

“He looked like a complete all-round midfield football player, and that was a big bonus for England for sure.”

Here are today's biggest transfer stories and the latest team news involving Leeds United and the rest of the Premier League, as the reaction to last season and the build-up to summer transfer window continues:
