Rob Dorsett reports that the shoulder injury picked up by Kalvin Phillips in Leeds' final game of the season is a real concern for England manager Gareth Southgate ahead of the Euros, but the midfielder should be fit to make the squad.

Harry Maguire and Kalvin Phillips are expected to be fit to feature at Euro 2020 if selected by England manager Gareth Southgate on Tuesday.

Manchester United captain Maguire is stepping up his rehabilitation, having not played since he damaged his left ankle ligaments two weeks ago against Aston Villa.

Phillips suffered a shoulder injury in the dying minutes of Leeds United's final Premier League game of the season against West Brom on Sunday when challenging Grady Diangana.

On Monday, Leeds said the injury is currently being treated conservatively, but added Phillips should be fit for the start of the Euros campaign next month.

Phillips, who was on target in the 3-1 win at Elland Road, was booked in the fourth minute of injury time for the tackle but did not go off as Leeds had already made three substitutions.

The 25-year-old started all three of March's World Cup Qualifiers for England, having made his international debut last year against Denmark.
