Kalvin Phillips warned ahead of Manchester City move

Kalvin Phillips would be a great signing for Manchester City.

The Cityzens have agreed on a £51million transfer fee to sign Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips this summer.

The 26-year-old is yet to agree on personal terms but he is a direct replacement for veteran Fernandinho who leaves this summer.

Former City goalkeeper Shay Given gives his verdict on City’s new signing.

Shay Given said on talkSPORT: “He is a top-class player and there is no getting away from that. The only decision he would have to make in a World Cup year would be is he going to go to City and start every game?

“He has been starting for England. If he is a bit-part player for City, will that spell trouble for his England career? For this year especially with the World Cup coming in December.”

Given added: “That’s the only question for him but, as a player, he is brilliant.

“You can’t ask Rodri to play every game, every three days with the Champions League, Premier League and for their internationals, as well. I think he will be a great signing.”
