Manchester City have agreed a fee with Leeds United for the transfer of Kalvin Phillips according to latest report.
There has been much speculation about Phillips’ future after Leeds narrowly avoided relegation last season. The England international has been linked with clubs in higher regions of the Premier League table.
There has been interest from West Ham and Aston Villa, both of whom finished above Leeds last season. But Phillips has been aiming even higher, with a move to Manchester City becoming a preference.
