The Whites have already made four new signings, the most recent being Sean McGurk of Wigan Athletic.

However, transfer windows are not just about bringing in people, and although Marcelo Bielsa has already seen players like Ezgjan Alioski leave his team, he still loses more talent, with Kiko Casilla strongly linked with a move to La Liga’s Elche next days.

And he is not the only Leeds player in demand.

Here are today’s Leeds United transfer rumors …

Berbatov wants Phillips at Old Trafford

Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has urged his former club to make a move for Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips

The 25-year-old has won over an army of fans with his superb performances at this summer’s European Championship, and Berbatov thinks he would be an ideal signing for the Reds.

As quoted by Metro, he said: “Kalvin Phillips also stood out again [in the 2-1 semi-final win over Denmark].

“He has been one of the players of the tournament and sooner or later I hope that he will leave Leeds for a bigger club.

“Offers will come to you after the tournament. He is playing with maturity, agility, knowing when to run with the ball and when to pass.

“I would like to see him sign for Manchester United.”

A lifelong local lad and Leeds fan, we’re not quite sure how happy Phillips would be with the prospect of swapping Elland Road for Old Trafford.

Leeds want to keep Meslier

Leeds United will resist any attempt to remove young goalkeeper Illan Meslier from the club this summer.

As detailed by Leeds Live, there have been unconfirmed rumors linking the Frenchman to the interest of PSG.

It’s easy to see why it could be so in demand. Last season, despite turning just 21 in March, he established himself as the number one blocker for the Whites, keeping 11 clean sheets in the process.

Understandably, he is a player most associated with the club would want to stay, and that rings doubly true given recent reports regarding Casilla’s expected departure.
