A new report providing an insight into Kalvin Phillips and his time at Manchester City has revealed what the England international thinks of his move to the Etihad Stadium.
The latest insight comes as Phillips closes in on a move to the London Stadium, and a link-up with West Ham United boss David Moyes, who is understood to be a long-term admirer of the midfielder’s capabilities.
Such is Moyes’ belief that Phillips can be an integral part of the West Ham squad this season and beyond, that the Hammers have sanctioned a deal that will see them cover his entire salary and take on a buy-option for the summer window.
Despite his Manchester City career coming to an end following a largely disastrous period on a game-time and opportunities front, a new report has detailed what the player really thinks of his exit from Leeds United for the silverware and success of the Etihad Stadium.
As revealed by a new report from Jack Gaughan for MailSport, a source has stressed to the newspaper, “Kalvin (Phillips) doesn’t have any regrets about the move (to Manchester City).”
18 months on from joining the Premier League champions from Leeds United in a £42 million deal, and MailSport states that Phillips genuinely believes he leaves Manchester City a better player than the one who walked through the doors in the summer of 2022.
However, despite Phillips being a hugely popular member of the City dressing room largely due to his infectious personality, the same report also reveals an admission that the player has ‘not seemed himself recently as it became clear that his future would lie elsewhere’.
Kalvin Phillips has already had chance to say his farewells and thank yous to his City teammates and club staff this week, during an eight-hour flight from Abu Dhabi back to Manchester following a warm-weather training camp in the middle-east.
The 28-year-old did however get the opportunity to score a goal in a Manchester City shirt in December, after striking home a confident penalty in the European champions’ victory over Red Star Belgrade in Serbia on matchday six of the Champions League group stage.
City could look to the market in the summer to replace Phillips, with a number of options on their agenda, including Bayern Munich and Germany international Joshua Kimmich – a player Pep Guardiola knows well from his time in Bavaria.
