Liverpool Football Club is reportedly prepared to let defender Nat Phillips leave Anfield to join Leeds United, but only on a permanent deal. Phillips has fallen out of favor at Liverpool following the return of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez from injury, and the club is open to the idea of selling him to Leeds.

Phillips joined Liverpool’s youth academy in 2016 and has been with the club ever since. He made his first team debut in 2019 and played a key role in the team’s successful campaign in the 2020-2021 season, helping the club win the Premier League title.

However, with the return of van Dijk and Gomez, Phillips has found himself on the fringes of the Liverpool squad. Leeds, on the other hand, are in need of defensive reinforcements, having struggled in that area during the previous season.

For Liverpool, however, the departure of Phillips would represent the loss of a promising young talent. Nevertheless, with the club’s crowded defensive roster, it is understandable why Liverpool would be willing to let him go, especially if the deal is a permanent one.
