England midfielder Phillips signs for Man City on six-year deal

LONDON: Manchester City has signed Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips for £45m on Monday, according to a BBC report.

The 26-year-old England international has signed a six-year deal with the Premier League champions.

He becomes Pep Guardiola’s third summer signing after the arrivals of Erling Haaland and Stefan Ortega Moreno.

“I am absolutely delighted to have joined Manchester City. City have again proved to be the best team in the country,” Phillips said.

Phillips, who made 235 appearances over eight seasons at Elland Road, still had two years left on his Leeds deal.

He said City have “an amazing squad and a manager in Pep Guardiola who is rightly considered to be the finest in the world”.
