West Ham gets Kalvin Phillips after transfer deal completed

by Noe

Kalvin Phillips will be playing for his third professional team as the English footballer enters his 10th year professionally.

A transfer deal was completed between West Ham and Manchester United that would allow the Hammers to acquire the 28-year-old defensive midfielder. Phillips is scheduled for a medical in London later this week.

The deal comes after several clubs, including Newcastle and Juventus, were interested in signing Philips. However, City’s demand for a higher loan fee dissuaded the Magpies and other clubs from pursuing the 5-foot-10 Leeds native.

Phillips, who will be on loan for the rest of the season, could be signed by West Ham permanently. He agreed to a £45-million loan. six-year contract with City from Leeds in July 2022.

Under the deal, West Ham is expected to cover Phillips’ salary from City. The former Leeds United standout joined City at a training camp in Abu Dhabi but is expected to arrive on Wednesday.

The deal could be a blessing for Phillips, who only started twice for City under Pep Guardiola. He has struggled after just playing four times with City this season.
Phillips is expected to get a bigger role under Hammers boss David Moyes. West Ham is also committed to give Phillips a pay increase to upgrade his £ 130,000-a-week salary under City.
