Kalvin Phillips graduated from Leeds United’s development academy; Man City paid between £45 million and £50 million for the England international; Midfielder has committed to Pep Guardiola’s team for six years.

Midfielder Kalvin Phillips has been officially signed by Manchester City for an estimated £45 million to £50 million on a six-year deal after leaving Leeds United.

England international Phillips has left his childhood club, where he progressed through the system and thrived under former manager Marcelo Bielsa, after reaching a personal agreement and passing a physical.

The 26-year-old, who will don the No. 4 jersey, will aim to fill Fernandinho’s shoes at City after the Brazilian left the team this summer following nine years at the Etihad Stadium.

I’m beyond thrilled to have joined Man City, Phillips stated.

“With a magnificent roster and a manager in Pep Guardiola who is rightfully regarded as the best in the world, City have once again demonstrated why they are the best team in the nation.

“I’m really pleased about the prospect of playing for Pep, learning from him and his coaching staff, and being a member of a terrific team.
