The manager of Newcastle United, has issued an update on the club’s pursuit of Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips.
Newcastle United are considering a January move for Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips.

The England international is expected to leave the Etihad Stadium later this month in search of regular playing time ahead of Euro 2024. The 28-year-old has made just two Premier League starts for Manchester City this season, and has made just two Premier League starts since his £42 million move from Leeds United in 2022.

Newcastle are pursuing a loan deal for Phillips until the end of the season, with Manchester City demanding a loan fee in excess of £7 million. Juventus have also been linked with a bid for Phillips, who is said to prefer a transfer to Newcastle.
The Serie A club’s interest has now waned, leaving Newcastle in pole position to complete a deal. The Magpies are looking to boost their midfield after Sandro Tonali was banned from betting for the rest of the season.

Tonali is a player Newcastle ‘needs to replace’ this January, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, with Phillips a’very good’ alternative to replace him.

“Newcastle have been considering a move for Phillips since December,” Romano told The Analyst. He’s one of the people on their list.

“Newcastle need to replace Tonali, while Phillips wants to play more because it’s also important to get enough game time for Euro 2024.” Juventus was interested in Phillips, but the transaction is currently on the verge of collapse. “In my opinion, it would be a very good decision from Newcastle; Phillips can have an immediate impact, knows Premier League football well, and he’s really hungry,” he continued. This is a critical point.”
