West Ham in Advanced Discussions for Kalvin Phillips Signing

West Ham United are reportedly making strides in their pursuit of Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips, with talks advancing towards a potential loan deal.

The Hammers seem ready to meet Manchester City’s demand for a substantial loan fee, rumoured to be in the range of £6-7 million for the next six months.

Phillips, who has struggled for playing time at the Etihad, could be seeking a fresh start and regular game time. Despite interest from other clubs like Newcastle United, West Ham appears to be leading the race for the midfielder.

If the deal goes through, Phillips could become David Moyes’ first signing in the January transfer window.

The move could offer Phillips the opportunity to secure a starting spot at West Ham, enhancing his chances of making the England squad for the upcoming Euros. As the Hammers pursue Phillips, they are also in the market for a forward, facing challenges in their attempts to sign players like Armando Broja and Jhon Duran.

With time ticking in the transfer window, West Ham remain optimistic about potential signings, including Leeds United’s Wilfried Gnonto, as they aim to strengthen their squad for the rest of the season.
