How much is West Ham’s option to buy clause for Kalvin Phillips?



| Last Updated:


West Ham will reportedly have the option to buy Kalvin Phillips on a permanent deal from Manchester City this summer.

The 28-year-old midfielder will join West Ham on an initial loan deal for the remainder of the ongoing season after the Hammers came to an agreement with Manchester City on a package for the England international on Tuesday afternoon.

Manchester City have stood firm on their demands for the midfielder this transfer window, and it appears as though their patient approach towards negotiations has now paid off with West Ham providing the best opportunity for all parties.

It is widely understood that West Ham will be covering the full amount of Kalvin Phillips’ wages during his time at the club, and further reporting has revealed details around their option to buy the player in the summer market.

That is according to the information of Florian Plettenberg, who claims that West Ham have secured an option to buy Kalvin Phillips from Manchester City this summer, with that fee reported to be around €40 million.

In a separate detail from The Athletic’s David Ornstein, it is claimed that West Ham’s option to buy the Englishman only applies if London Stadium officials agree to pay Manchester City’s valuation in the summer.

Phillips loan move to West Ham United will now present him with a golden opportunity to revive his top-level career following a difficult 18 months with Manchester City, and break into Gareth Southgate’s plans for the upcoming European Championships.

The former Leeds United man was below several names in Pep Guardiola’s midfield pecking order, and failed to take on significant game time for the reigning Champions even during moments of absence or suspension from mainstay Rodri.

It remains unknown as to whether Manchester City will seek a permanent replacement for Kalvin Phillips during the upcoming summer transfer window, however they are unlikely to recruit in his position this month barring a drastic change of plans from Etihad bosses.
