Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips is set to join West Ham on a loan deal until the end of the season.
According to reports in England, West Ham has reached an agreement with Manchester City over signing midfielder Kalvin Phillips on a loan deal until the summer. The London club will pay his salary and reportedly has an option to sign him permanently.
Juventus, Crystal Palace, and Newcastle were also interested in signing the English player, but they failed to meet Man City’s financial demands. Phillips was in Abu Dhabi with the rest of the Manchester City squad and is due to return to England on Tuesday.
The 28-year-old Phillips joined City from Leeds for £45m in July 2022 but failed to earn Guardiola’s trust and has just played in 31 matches. He just started in two Premier League matches last season and has started only once in the Premier League this season.
Pep Guardiola admitted in December that he “struggles to see Phillips” in his starting line-up.
Phillips has played in 31 matches for England and hopes regular game time in the second part of the season saves his place in Gareth Southgate’s squad for the Euro 2024.
