Kalvin Phillips has been linked with a move to Manchester City.
The England midfielder has been influential for Leeds United last season even though the club managed to survive a hard-fought relegation battle.
He has been linked with a move to Etihad this summer as a potential replacement for Fernandinho who will leave by the end of this month.
The English midfielder could fill the void with the departing Brazilian but he would want guaranteed minutes in the first-team.
“He should be going somewhere he’s playing regular football every week. Phillips shouldn’t go somewhere if he’s going to be on the bench, playing every five weeks or something,” former Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish said.
“No. For me, for his career, wherever he goes, he’s going to make enormous money.
“It stands to reason that he goes to someone for enormous money and plays every week. I would say if he is not guaranteed as a Man City stalwart or in the nucleus of the team, he should go somewhere else.”
