Leeds United will reportedly fight tooth and nail to hang on to key players Jack Clarke and Kalvin Phillips next season.

Leeds United will reportedly reject all interest in Jack Clarke and Kalvin Phillips this summer as they look to bounce back from their promotion disappointment.

Marcelo Bielsa's side had been among the favourites for promotion to the Premier League for the majority of last season, only to suffer a late-season dip and ultimately lose out to Derby County in the playoff semi-finals.

Clarke, 18, caught the eye of a number of clubs during that campaign, including Tottenham Hotspur, who view him as an alternative to Aston Villa's Jack Grealish and are said to be gearing up to make an offer.

Meanwhile midfielder Phillips, 23, is of rumoured interest to eventual playoff champions Aston Villa, who are prepared to spend £14m on the life-long Leeds servant.

According to the Daily Star, Leeds are adamant to keep hold of the pair as they mount a new promotion challenge next season and have placed a price tag of £20m on each of the players.

Leeds last played in the top flight in the 2003-04 season.
