West Ham have reached an agreement with Manchester City over a transfer of Kalvin Phillips, according to several sources. The agreement includes a loan move, with the Hammers having the option to make it permanent at the end of the season.
Phillips has been very keen to leave the Etihad in January. Being an England international, he understandably aims to play at the European Championship this year, and that wasn’t likely to happen with the amount of game-time he was getting from Pep Guardiola at City.
Newcastle were long believed to be leading the race for Phillips, needing an addition in the middle of the park to replace the suspended Sandro Tonali. Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus were mentioned as well, all with different suggestions concerning the shape and financial arrangements of the proposed transfer.
However, Phillips is now set to play for West Ham for the rest of the season, and it remains to be seen what comes after.
West Ham have now reached an agreement with Manchester City to sign Kalvin Phillips. It’s a loan until the end of the season with a potential option to buy.
