Manchester City: Kalvin Phillips set for Friday medical -Manchester City News

Kalvin Phillips is now set to undergo a medical at Manchester City on Friday ahead of completing his switch to the Etihad.

The Lowdown: City win the race

The 26-year-old had been heavily linked with a move away from Elland Road after Leeds only just managed to maintain their Premier League status last season, with West Ham and Aston Villa both tabling bids for the midfielder, but it was the top-flight champions who won the race for his signature.

It was announced by Sky Sports just last week that a deal had been agreed for the England maestro to join Pep Guardiola’s side, and in a fresh update, it now looks as though the transfer is almost officially over the line.

The Latest: Phillips set for medical

In a new article published by Football Insider, it’s claimed that a City source has told the website that Phillips is ‘pencilled in for medical tests’ on Friday as the club edge ever closer to securing their target.

The report states that all paperwork is now ‘in place’ for the Whites star to be officially announced as the Sky Blues’ next signing ‘within days’, with the player ‘set to double’ the wages he currently earns at Leeds.

City fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 Premier League season?

The Verdict: Fernandinho replacement

After Fernandinho departed City to return to his former side Athletico Paranaense, Phillips will be the perfect replacement for the ex-captain in the middle of the park and is someone who will be able to bring a fresh energy to the starting XI.

The 23-cap international only made 20 appearances under Jesse Marsch in the Premier League last campaign after suffering from injury, but still managed to make a real impact when on the pitch, averaging 2.7 tackles and 3.5 long balls per match, via WhoScored.

Would Phillips be a good signing for City?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Having this ability of being able to both attack and defend box-to-box is something that is so important to Guardiola’s control in the middle of the park, and Phillips will definitely add some serious competition for Rodri as he looks forward to the start of a new chapter in his career in Manchester.
