Kalvin Phillips ‘desperate’ to join English football giants

Manchester City are likely to entertain offers for first-team outcast Kalvin Phillips. With the player now said to be ‘desperate’ to join his former club Leeds United.

The England international is on the verge of facing a major crossroads in his top-level professional playing career. With his stay at the Etihad Stadium not expected to go much further beyond the end of the ongoing season.

Following numerous questionable performances and errors leading to goals Phillips once again finds himself restricted to substitute duties. And is unlikely to feature much more during the remaining matches of the campaign.

Kalvin Phillips willing to join English Giants

However, a fresh opportunity could present itself during the upcoming summer market. Should his former club end the season on the ultimate high by securing promotion back into the Premier League.

According to the information of Football Insider, Kalvin Phillips is ‘desperate’ to re-sign for current Championship side and English football giants Leeds United. That is during the upcoming summer transfer window.

The report has detailed that West Ham United coaches – whom the midfielder currently operates under are ‘convinced’ that “all Phillips is interested in is playing for Leeds”.

Kalvin Phillips originally signed for Manchester City in July 2022 on a six-year contract, in the same window as the likes of Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez, for a reported initial fee of £42 million potentially rising to £45 million in add-ons.

However, given the exceptionally high standards set by Rodri in defensive midfield for City, it was almost an impossible task for Phillips to establish himself as a mainstay in Pep Guardiola’s system, whilst he also struggled to grasp the requirements of the playing style.

Manchester City may be open to another temporary move away from the club for Kalvin Phillips for the 2024/25 season, but the player would almost certainly require consistent game time if he is to return to his form of earlier in his career.
