Manchester City have completed the signing of midfielder Kalvin Phillips from Leeds on a six-year contract, the Premier League champions have announced.
City agreed on a basic fee of £42million with Leeds for the England international last month, with a potential further £3m to be added in bonuses.
Phillips, who came through the youth ranks at Leeds, switches to the Etihad Stadium after making 235 appearances for his hometown club over the past eight seasons. During that long period, Leeds played many amazing matches and Leeds fans enjoyed betting live on that matches, most of the time.
Phillips said: “I am absolutely delighted to have joined Manchester City. City have again proved to be 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 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.”
Phillips is the City’s fourth new arrival of the summer after the signings of Erling Haaland, Stefan Ortega Moreno, and Julian Alvarez.
