Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips has joined Premier League club West Ham on a loan deal until the end of the season.
West Ham confirmed on Friday that they have signed Kalvin Phillips on a six-month loan deal. David Moyes’ side will pay Phillips’ wages in full as well as a loan fee. West Ham reportedly have no option to sign him permanently in the summer.
The 28-year-old Phillips just made four appearances in the Premier League this season and was looking for more game time ahead of Euro 2024.
Phillips told the Hammers’ website: “I’m really pleased to be here. There’s always been a lot of speculation about me moving to West Ham. so I’m really excited to get going now.
“There’s so much to look forward to in the second half of the season for the club and I can’t wait to be part of it.“
He added: “There’s an unbelievable group here and if I can come in and add the quality that I know I’m capable of. I’m sure we can give the West Ham fans plenty to be excited about between now and the end of the season.”
David Moyes added: “We are really pleased to bring a player of Kalvin’s quality to West Ham United.
“We’ve been big admirers of him for a long time and we believe that he will add strength and competition to our squad.
“Kalvin is an England international midfielder, with proven Premier League experience. we’re excited to welcome him into the group and look forward to working with him.”
Phillips joined Man City in July 2022 in a £43 million transfer from Leeds United but failed to earn Guardiola’s trust. He only played in 31 matches for City and started just twice in the Premier League.
