Kalvin Phillips reportedly agrees on a loan move to West Ham

Kalvin Phillips has reportedly agreed on a loan move to West Ham. If the move does materialise it will bring a temporary end to the England international’s time at Manchester City.

Josh Fordham and Alex Crook have reported for talkSPORT that Kalvin Phillips has agreed to move to West Ham on loan. They add that talks between Manchester City and West Ham are now at an advanced stage in regards to a loan deal for the midfielder. Furthermore, Fordham and Crook add that West Ham manager David Moyes is keen to see Phillips arrive at the club.

With Kalvin Phillips close to sealing a move to West Ham it would end a frustrating time at Manchester City for the midfielder. After deciding to stay at the treble winners in the summer he has been unable to make an impression this season. He has only managed 10 appearances in all competitions with the majority of those being as a late substitute.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has previously apologised for not playing Phillips. Speaking before City’s 2-1 win over Luton Town earlier this season he said: “I don’t know what’s going to happen. I feel so sorry for my decision for him. I’ve said that many times. He doesn’t deserve what has happened to him and I’m so sorry.”

With the European Championships upcoming this summer Phillips has been looking for regular football to maintain his spot in Gareth Southgate’s England squad. With a move to West Ham appearing imminent, he may soon get his wish.
