Manchester City have agreed a deal worth £45m for Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips, according to David Ornstein.
The 26-year-old has emerged as City’s top midfield transfer target in recent weeks, with Pep Guardiola keen to strengthen his options in the middle of the park.
Phillips, 25, has two years left on his Leeds United contract and although very loyal to the Whites, it was inevitable he was heading for a club at the other end of the Premier League table.
Not only has the 25-year-old played a massive role in the Whites returning to the Premier League, but he has also broken through on the international stage and continues to be an important player for Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions.
However, ahead of his impending transfer to the Etihad, fans of the Yorkshire-based club will be feeling bitterly disappointed that they’re set to lose one of their most loved players.
