Kalvin Phillips next club: Latest transfer odds for England midfielder

After eight wonderful years with Leeds United, it was only logical that Kalvin Phillips’ talent will get the appropriate amount of interest.

It was none other than Spanish legend Pep Guardiola who saw the signs. Manchester City snapped up Phillips after a compelling £42m bid for his services. An additional performance-related £3m was added to the contract to sweeten the deal.

However, after making only 12 appearances for the Citizens last season, it seems that Phillips’ services will not be needed at Etihad during the 2023/24 season.

Rarely does Guardiola’s transfers flop, but even the Barcelona club legend must admit, Phillips at Manchester City was not what everyone hoped it would be.

Now, the 27-year-old midfielder will most certainly get transferred before the Premier League season kicks off. Which team will Kalvin use to revive his stagnating career? Let’s see what the latest odds look like.

West Ham – 7/2

After sensational winning the UEFA Europa Conference League, West Ham’s ambitions now soar higher than ever. The Hammers had a dreadful 2022/23 Premier League season but will now try to live up to the expectations that the fans have of them.

David Moyes is an admirer of Phillips’ work for a long time and it seems that the Hammers look like favorites to snap up Phillips this summer. There’s a massive Declan Rice-shaped hole at the centre of the pitch after the 24-year-old midfielder joined Arsenal a few weeks ago.

West Ham should have no financial issues signing Phillips, as the Declan Rice transfer brought a staggering £105m to the club’s treasury. The money should be spent carefully to reshape the squad, and adding Phillips will surely be a huge plus to West Ham’s ambitions this season.

The 27-year-old midfielder will most likely be granted a key role at London Stadium, and that’s a huge plus in favor of this deal as well.

Liverpool – 6/1

Merseyside’s fans are looking to quickly forget the 2022/23 season, as there was nothing good that happened during that campaign. Jurgen Klopp’s boys failed on all fronts – Premier League, Champions League, and FA Cup.

However, Liverpool’s board is eager to renew the clash with the Citizens for the Premier League title. The men in charge are sparing no expense, as the team already snapped up Dominik Szoboszlai and Alexis Mac Allister,

Plenty of players left the club as well. Club legends Roberto Firmino and Jordan Henderson opted for a Saudi Arabian adventure, while James Millner will defend Brighton’s colors this season.

Jurgen Klopp already said that his team is interested in signing Phillips, and seeing as the team has the financial potential to finish the deal, we might just see the 27-year-old sign with Merseyside and prove coach Guardiola he made a crucial mistake by underestimating him.

Newcastle – 15/2


West Ham and Liverpool might have a decent financial situation going on, but one thing is certain – not a single club in the Premier League can compete with Newcastle’s economic might. The club showed tremendous stoicism to keep its place in the top 4 during the 2022/23 season, and now, coach Eddie Howe’s boys will have to compete on multiple fronts, with Champions League action finally returning to St. James’ Park in September.

The Magpies already spent a whopping €116m on transfer fees this summer, but the new board doesn’t want to stop there. Sure, adding AC Milan’s former defensive midfielder Sandro Tonali and Leicester’s Harvey Barnes to your team is always good news, but snapping Kalvin Phillips will give coach Howe more opportunities to rotate his squad, with the busy schedule ahead of the Magpies.

We don’t think Phillips will get as many minutes at St. James’ Park as he would at London Stadium, but at least he’ll finally get a chance to enjoy Champions League football. And who knows, if he’s solid with his display, coach Eddie Howe might just make him a firm starter.

Should the 27-year-old midfielder join the Magpies’ ranks, he’ll have to bring his A-game, as he’ll compete for a starting position with the likes of Sandro Tonali and fan-favorite Bruno Guimaraes. With so much competition, Kalvin Phillips might shy away from this fight, despite coach Eddie Howe’s desire to add him to his team.
