It would appear that Newcastle United are now the favourites to secure the former Leeds United man. With Juventus out of the race, it seems that a move to another Premier League club may be the best option for Kalvin Phillips.
Pete O’Rourke reports for footballinsider247.com that Tottenham are monitoring Kalvin Phillips. Furthermore, O’Rourke adds that West Ham is also interested in a possible deal for the City midfielder.
As it stands there have been no concrete bids for the England international. With Juventus out of the race, it would appear that the suitors for the England international are now a host of domestic clubs.
After turning down the opportunity to leave the champions during the summer the saga of Phillips future continues to roll on.
