Danny Mills fears for Leeds United after it was confirmed that Kalvin Phillips would be sidelined for a number of weeks with a shoulder injury.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, the former Whites and Manchester City defender said that it will be a “big blow” for the 24-year-old personally having just broken into the England team.
The centre-midfielder was initially ruled out for up to six weeks with a shoulder injury sustained in the 1-0 loss to Wolves on Monday.
However, as revealed by Football Insider the club are now optimistic that the midfielder may return after the next international break in mid-November, just a month away.
Phillips, who has played every single minute of Premier League action for Leeds so far this season, was lauded by Mills for his performances of late.
“The injury is an issue for Leeds,” he told Football Insider.
