The 26-year-old midfielder is focused on helping the team survive in the Premier League this season.


The club and his representatives are scheduled to hold talks over a new deal at the end of the campaign if they stay in the Premier League, but his future at Elland Road remains under the scanner.



He is the top target for Aston Villa in the summer but the interest from Manchester United is a major topic of discussion in the Yorkshire city.


It has been claimed that there is still no contact between Manchester United and Leeds or the player over a move yet.



However, the Premier League giants are interested in him and are exploring a deal to sign him through intermediaries.


The Red Devils are considering taking him to Old Trafford in a deal worth £50m in the summer.



But there are question marks whether Phillips would be prepared to burn his bridges with Leeds by joining Manchester United.


Alan Smith was the last Leeds player to make the move across the M62.
