Phillips’ Troubles at Manchester City

Kalvin Phillips, the 28-year-old midfielder, is currently facing a challenging period in his career. After a promising start with a treble win at Manchester City following his £45m move from Leeds United, Phillips has struggled to secure regular playing time. His situation worsened after a loan to West Ham turned sour, culminating in a disappointing performance that likely cost him his place in the upcoming Euro 2024 England squad.

Potential Return to Leeds United

Despite the difficulties, there may be a silver lining for Phillips. Leeds United, his former club, is considering a bid to bring him back to Elland Road, especially if they secure promotion back to the Premier League. This development comes amidst reports that Manchester City is willing to part with Phillips for a reduced fee of £30m in the summer transfer window.

Phillips’ History with Leeds

Phillips is no stranger to Leeds United, having spent 12 years with the club, playing 234 games after rising through their academy ranks. Under the guidance of Marcelo Bielsa, Phillips found his form and played a crucial role in Leeds’ climb back to the Premier League in 2021. His potential return to Leeds hinges on the club’s success in their promotion bid.

Leeds United’s Promotion Chase

Leeds United’s prospects of reclaiming a spot in the Premier League received a significant lift following their recent 3-1 victory over Hull City. The win propelled them to second place in the Championship table, just one point behind leaders Ipswich and ahead of Leicester City, who have a game in hand. With only six matches remaining in the season, Leeds’ fate and possibly Phillips’ future at the club hang in the balance.

Phillips’ England Career and Future Prospects

With 31 England caps to his name, Phillips’ international career has been notable. However, his current contract with Manchester City, which runs until 2028, has not panned out as hoped. The reduced transfer fee and Leeds United’s interest offer a potential route for Phillips to revive his club career and possibly rekindle his international prospects ahead of Euro 2024.
