Four clubs in contention to sign Kalvin Phillips as Man City flop eyes January transfer window exit

Kalvin Phillips has as many as four Premier League clubs interested in his services after struggling to make the grade at Manchester City.

Phillips joined City in a £42 million switch from Leeds United in the summer of 2022 and was part of the side which won a historic treble under Pep Guardiola.

However, he made just four starts in all competitions and looked set to move on in the summer.

There were plenty of sides linked with Phillips, whose first-team prospects were dealt another blow following the £53 million capture of Mateus Nunes from Wolves on deadline day.

With Rodri performing at a different level, Phillips' only start in seven games this term came in a 1-0 a Carabao Cup defeat to Newcastle and the England international's future at City looks bleak.

And according to Alex Crook from talkSPORT, a quartet of clubs are in the mix for Phillips.

Liverpool looked at him in the summer after letting Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and James Milner moved on.

They ultimately signed both Ryan Gravenberch and Wataru Endo but still look a light in the middle of the park, with Alexis Mac Allister playing in a defensive midfield position.

Newcastle are also on the hunt for a new midfielder after Sandro Tonali was hit with a 10-month ban for breaching betting regulations, while Fulham are potential suitors in the event that Bayern Munich come back in for Joao Palhinha after a deadline day switch fell at the last second.

High-flying Spurs are another team said to be keeping tabs on the 27-year old, though their need for a new midfielder is far less pressing given they have the likes of Yves Bissouma, Pape Sarr and Rodrigo Bentancur.

Phillips had admitted he would have to make a decision on his future soon and Guardiola has opened the door for his exit.

However, he has still praised Phillips for his attitude and supports his colleagues.

"Never, ever makes one action against mates that play or trains bad," he said in a press conference, as per the Daily Mail.

"I'd love to give him as much minutes as possible."
