The impending move of Kalvin Phillips to West Ham is the best move for all parties. Fabrizio Romano reports that a deal has been agreed for the England international to move to the London Stadium.
The transfer expert has reported that a deal between the two clubs has been agreed for Kalvin Phillips. Furthermore, Romano reports that the midfielder is set for a medical with David Moyes side tomorrow. In addition to the medical Romano reports that the deal includes an option to buy included in the loan deal for Phillips.
With Kalvin Phillips struggling to break into Pep Guardiola’s squad the move is the best for all parties. The former Leeds United midfielder will get an opportunity for regular first-team football with a team contending for European football. It will also allow Phillips to stake his claim in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the upcoming European Championships. The Hammers currently sit 6th in the Premier League table. They’ll be looking to contend for the European places and will hope that the England international can aid their cause.
Manchester City will move on a player that was clearly not in Pep Guardiola’s plans. The midfielder has been a model professional during his spell at the treble winners. To his credit, he has not caused any off-field issues while continuing to miss out on first-team opportunities. With an option to buy included in the deal, it could see the world champions recoup some of the fee they paid Leeds to secure the midfielder.
Kalvin Phillips will leave Manchester City as a treble winner and a part of the club’s history. While his time at the European champions didn’t pan out his impending move to West Ham is the best for all parties concerned.
