Kevin Phillips' agent has stated his client is 'unlikely' to join League One outfit Leeds United this summer.
The former England international is out of contract with newly-promoted West Brom following a prolific season with The Baggies.
With Phillips' future uncertain Gary McAllister's Whites had been linked with an audacious bid for the 34-year-old free agent.
However, his agent believes any potential move is unlikely and that Phillips would not even entertain the possibility of playing in League One had it not been a club of Leeds' size and stature.
"I've spoken to Gary but I told him that, out of courtesy, until such time as we've spoken to West Brom, we won't be holding conversations with anyone else," Phillips' agent Phil Smith, of First Artist, told the Yorkshire Evening Post.
"(League One) is not preferable and, to be perfectly honest, if it wasn't Leeds there would be nothing to discuss. It's unlikely that it would happen."
