Kalvin Phillips, a Leeds United academy graduate, is said to be on his way out of Manchester City.
The 27-year-old signed with the Premier League champions in 2022, ending a long affiliation with his childhood club.
However, he has struggled to break through to Pep Guardiola’s starting lineup.
With competition for midfield positions tough, he only made 26 appearances for the club in all competitions.
There has been much speculation over his future, with Newcastle United, Arsenal, and Aston Villa among the clubs connected with a move for the England international.
Phillips is expected to leave the Etihad Stadium, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
“Understand both City and the player side consider Kalvin Phillips’ January exit’very likely’ at this point,” he wrote on X.
“Kalvin will still fight to play as much as possible in the next two months but his plan is to be regular starter elsewhere in 2024.”
