Manchester City confirm signing of Leeds’ Kalvin Phillips

Manchester City have confirmed the signing of Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips in a £45m deal.

Phillips has signed a six-year contract at the Etihad Stadium to reinforce manager Pep Guardiola’s defensive midfield options following the departure of Fernandinho, who has returned to Brazil on a free transfer. He will take the club’s vacant number four shirt.

City reached an agreement with Leeds in late June, and they have now officially confirmed the 26-year-old’s arrival after he passed a medical.

“I am absolutely delighted to have joined Manchester City,” Phillips told City’s club channels. 

“City have again proved to the best team in the country with an amazing squad and a manager in who is rightly considered to be the finest in the world.
