Kalvin Phillips has not started a Premier League game for Manchester City this season

West Ham have agreed a deal with Manchester City to sign England midfielder Kalvin Phillips on loan for the rest of the season.

Phillips, 28, signed a six-year contract when he arrived at City from Leeds in a £45m deal in July 2022.

However, he has struggled under Pep Guardiola and has only started twice this term in all competitions.

Phillips, who is also interesting Juventus, now appears set to have a medical in London later this week.

Personal terms are not expected to be a problem, with the Hammers set to cover Phillips’ salary and there will reportedly be an option to make the move permanent.

Numerous clubs had expressed an interest in the player but City’s demand for a sizable loan fee has dissuaded clubs such as Newcastle from pursuing Phillips.

Phillips, who remains a member of Gareth Southgate’s England squad, is flying back to the UK today with the rest of the City squad from a warm-weather training camp in Abu Dhabi.
