Goood News:Newcastle United Have Been Linked with Manchester City Youngest Star Confirm Deal

A promising news regarding Kalvin Phillips’s pursuit has emerged from Newcastle.

It is understood that the Magpies are considering a trade for the Manchester City player.
Newcastle United has been connected to a January move for Kalvin Phillips of Manchester City, and a recent article provided an update on the club’s efforts.

How recently did Kalvin Phillips perform?

Phillips last appeared for England on Tuesday night at Wembley, where they defeated Italy 3-1 in a Euro 2024 qualifier. However, the defensive midfielder publicly acknowledged after the match that he would soon have to decide whether to stay with Manchester City or not.

Speaking to the BBC, he said: “I know that I need to be playing games and competing every weekend. I’m going to have to make a decision on my City future over the next months. Hopefully my chance comes but if it doesn’t then I will have to make other decisions”.

The Sky Blues star has been limited for minutes having made zero starts and three substitute appearances this term in the Premier League (WhoScored – Phillips statistics), so it’s completely understandable that he may want to look elsewhere next year.

Magpies boss Eddie Howe has made securing the services of a new defensive midfielder his priority in the upcoming transfer window, as per the following update, and it appears that the black and white stripes have highlighted the 27-year-old as a potential top target.

Kalvin Phillips transfer update

According to The Northern Echo, who have delivered a transfer update on Kalvin Phillips, Newcastle are preparing to strike a deal for the star at the Etihad Stadium:

Newcastle United are ready to make a quick January move for Kalvin Phillips if the England international decides it is time to leave Manchester City at the turn of the year  have stated that the 27-year-old is a possible top target.


Additionally, Josh Bunting, a journalist, has referred to Phillips as a “Rolls Royce” for his sophisticated performances. His agent, CAA Stellar (Transfermarkt – Phillips profile), represents Nick Pope, Javier Manquillo, and Elliot Anderson (all Newcastle agents). As a result, the club may have a slight advantage in January due to their current relationship with Phillips’ representative.

What is the weekly salary of Kalvin Phillips?

With Pep Guardiola at his side, Phillips earns £150,000 a week (Man City wages), which isn’t really that much given where he is in the hierarchy. However, if he decides to sign a contract with Newcastle, that may all change.

The youngster from Leeds is now registering a 90% pass success rate when he plays, which emphasizes his poise and serenity in possession, with Sven Botman averaging 92.2%, the only consistent player to average higher under Howe. (WhoScored – Newcastle statistics).
