Manchester City have anounced the signing of Kalvin Philips from Leeds United.

Manchester City have announced the signing of Kalvin Philips from Leeds United for a fee in the region of £45m to £50m on a six-year contract.

Following the agreement of personal terms and passing a medical, the England international Phillips has left his boyhood club, where he came through the academy and flourished under former boss Marcelo Bielsa.

Sportscliffs understands, out of loyalty to Leeds, the only club he would have joined was Manchester City and he had turned down approaches from other clubs.

The 26-year-old – who will wear the No 4 shirt – will look to fill the void left by Fernandinho at City, who left the club this summer after nine years at the Etihad Stadium.

Phillips said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have joined Man City.

“City have proved again 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, learn from him and his coaching staff as well as being part of a fantastic squad is a prospect that I’m incredibly excited about.

“City are a world-class club with world-class staff and facilities. It’s a dream come true to join.”
