Confirmed: Man City Sign Kalvin Phillips

Manchester City have completed the signing of midfielder Kalvin Phillips from Leeds on a six-year contract.

City agreed a basic fee of £42million with Leeds for the England international last month, with a potential further £3m to be added in bonuses. The 26-year-old midfielder joins from Leeds United, having made 234 appearances over the course of eight seasons, scoring 14 goals and assisting 14.

In addition to widespread admiration for his domestic performances with the Elland Road club, Kalvin has also received plaudits for his impressive individual and collective contribution to the England squad. He was one of the key components of the Three Lions side that reached the final of Euro 2020 last summer and also played an important role in helping guide the national side to this year’s World Cup finals in Qatar.

“I am absolutely delighted to have joined Manchester City,” Phillips said.

“City have again proved to the best team in the country with an amazing squad and a manager in Pep Guardiola who is rightly considered to be the finest in the world.

“To be able to play under Pep and learn from him and his coaching staff as well as be part of a such a fantastic squad is a prospect that I am incredibly excited about.

City are a world-class Club with world-class staff and facilities and it’s a dream come true to have joined the Club. Now I can’t wait to get started and to look to try and help the team to go on and achieve more success.”

Director of Football Txiki Begiristain added: “Kalvin is a player that we have long admired, and at both domestic and international level, he has proved his fantastic ability and quality over the past few seasons.

His reading of the game, alongside his passing ability, energy and drive make him a formidable talent and he is a player who has a fantastic will to win. We feel he will be a superb addition to our squad and that he will complement our game perfectly. Everyone here is looking forward to watch Kalvin play and develop even further over the next few years.”

Welcome to Manchester City Kalvin!
