Sources: Newcastle United Go For Youngest Player On Loan Deal In Biggest Team

Football Insider has received information from sources that Man City midfielder Kalvin Phillips may go on loan to Newcastle United during the January transfer window.

Furthermore, it’s thought that City won’t obstruct Phillips since Pep Guardiola doesn’t see the England international as being crucial to his future ambitions.


Football Insider has been informed by a reliable source that a short-term move might be the “ideal solution” for Newcastle and the player.

In an effort to safeguard its asset, City is prepared to let Phillips go on loan.

If the move goes well, they think it will boost his stock and spark a bidding battle amongst interested parties during the summer window.

Football Insider reported earlier this month (October 21) that Phillips has long been regarded by Newcastle and that the team almost signed him last year when he was still a Leeds United player. Once more, they are leading the pack.

He later signed a contract with Man City for an estimated £45 million in 2022, but he hasn’t played much for Guardiola’s team.

Phillips hopes to stay in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the 2024 European Championship in Germany, and he wants to play regularly in the first team. Despite the 27-year-old’s high level of interest, City won’t allow him to go cheaply.

Newcastle United, one of the teams interested in him, is hoping to recruit him to a short-term loan agreement. Due to the 10-month ban that their big summer acquisition Sandro Tonali received, the Magpies will need to find a new midfield player.

Tonali won’t appear until the beginning of the following season due to his involvement in unlawful betting and his suspension. Newcastle is therefore trying to sign a replacement. Although the Magpies are considering signing Phillips to a short-term loan agreement, they are doing it for FFP reasons.

According to the report, City won’t put a stop to his desire to join Newcastle. Both the player and his parent club will benefit from a move elsewhere. While an outstanding loan period could boost Phillips’ stock and spark a summer bidding war, he will receive consistent first-team playing time.
