Crystal Palace midfielder Killian Phillips is drawing interest from Championship duo Bristol City and Swansea City ahead of the opening of the summer transfer window in a few months, as detailed in a report by journalist Alan Nixon.

The 20-year-old is currently on loan at Shrewsbury Town and has garnered rave reviews from fans of the Shropshire club.

The energetic and athletic midfielder has appeared nine times in the league so far for a team that still has a long shot of making the play-offs, scoring once and providing another two assists.

According to the report, both clubs are considering whether to sign a loan deal or buy the young midfielder, as it remains to be seen if Crystal Palace would sanction his permanent departure.

The verdict

It’s not at all surprising to see Phillips already attracting interest from the Championship, but it would be a bit surprising to see Palace selling him when the summer window opens.

A midfielder with excellent levels of maturity, energy and technical ability, he is progressing at an exciting pace with the Liga One outfit.

Proving a real success at Shrewsbury during the early stages of his loan spell, he hopes his team can continue to progress in their quest to disrupt the current top six.

A player likely to emerge on several clubs’ radars if he can continue to thrive with the Shrews, it will be an interesting situation to watch.
