Kalvin Phillips Transfer News & Odds

Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips has impressed for the club ever since they were promoted back to the Premier League after a 16-year absence. Playing as a defensive midfielder, his spirited performances helped Leeds surprisingly secure a ninth-place finish in their first season back.

Despite a huge dip in form for Leeds this season, Phillips’ performances last season and this, before a devastating injury in December, have caught the eye of some of England's top clubs. At 26 years of age, with a successful Euros tournament recently under his belt, and with Leeds battling against relegation this season, is it time for Phillips to make the step up to a bigger club?

Arsenal Odds: 7/1

Arsenal's Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka has long been linked with a move away from the club, and this summer that move away may finally come to fruition for Xhaka. AS Roma are known to be admirers of the player and his former club Borussia Monchengladbach have also registered an interest. With a departure very likely, Arsenal will be looking to sign a replacement.

Being Premier-League-proven, as well as being disciplined and not making many mistakes, especially in comparison to Xhaka, makes Phillips an attractive option for the Gunners.

Averaging 52.5 passes a game in his 12 games played this season before succumbing to injury, with 0.6 key passes per game also, the midfielder shows security and creativity when in possession, something that would suit the Gunners' possession-focused build-up in matches. And for this reason, a Kalvin Phillips transfer to Arsenal is currently odds on at 7/1.

Aston Villa Odds: 7/1

Ever since Steven Gerrard agreed to become the manager of the Midlands side, he has set about making his imprint on the squad by bringing in many new faces.

Defenders Callum Chambers and Lucas Digne signed for the club and surprisingly, Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho joined on loan.

Midfielder, Phillips, has been heavily linked with a transfer to the club. But with Scot John McGinn a mainstay in the starting XI and young Jacob Ramsey making a name for himself with his impressive performances, and with the wealth of options already at Gerrard's disposal, is a move even feasible?

With Emiliano Buendia and Morgan Sanson failing to really announce themselves at Villa Park, whilst Douglas Luiz's form has remained inconsistent, and likely being priced out of a move for Yves Bissouma, Villa may look to splash more cash on another defensive-minded midfielder.

As well as his defensive ability, Phillips' proficiency in building attacks, shown by his 3.5 long balls a game in matches this season. These long balls to aerially dominant strikers like Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings could be a useful outlet in attack and could be what tempts Villa to make a move for him.

Phillips' odds of moving to Aston Villa are currently at 7/1.

Newcastle United Odds: 7/1

Another club that has been heavily linked with the Englishman is Newcastle United.

After purchasing Newcastle, the new owners have ambitious plans for the club, such as qualifying for European football and starting to win trophies. As a stepping-stone to reaching these ambitious targets, the owners may set the club a target of finishing in the top eight of the Premier League table next season. To do this, the Magpies will need to freshen up parts of their ageing and poor-quality squad to achieve this and begin building a legacy like their owners have said they want to.

One area that needs looking at is the midfield. Despite new arrivals Bruno Guimaraes and Joe Willock impressing, a defensive-minded midfielder, like Kalvin Phillips, is needed.

Although having been at the club a long time, Jonjo Shelvey is 30 years of age, and the club could be looking at moving him on. His age and lack of pace may render him obsolete not only for Newcastle's project but for the ever-growing pace and intensity of the Premier League.

Sean Longstaff seems to have fallen out of favour ever since bursting onto the scene as an exciting youngster, playing sporadic minutes in his 20 appearances this season.

Signing Phillips will bring a new dimension to Newcastle's new-look midfield, with Phillips' defensive nous balancing well will the creativity of Joe Willock and the attacking impetus of Bruno Guimaraes. This deal is currently at 7/1 odds.

Newcastle are priced at 7/1 to sign Phillips in the summer transfer window.

Liverpool Odds: 8/1

Jurgen Klopp has signed some fantastic midfield signing during his tenure at Liverpool, such as Thiago Alcantara for £25m or Fabinho's £43m move from Monaco, the latter being one the biggest reasons for the Reds' many successes over the past years. The tough-tackling Brazilian's all-action midfield displays have made it difficult for most sides to breach Liverpool's midfield, and he is the reason Liverpool concede so few chances, and as a result, so few goals.

Liverpool's interest in Kalvin Phillips might be because they see him as an heir to Fabinho, and so could be looking to sign him.

Veteran James Milner is currently 36-years-old, and despite still being a reliable performer, the club hierarchy may be looking to move him on. Milner's next move is extremely likely be a transfer back to his boyhood club Leeds, where he would presumably slot into Kalvin Phillips' vacant position. It is, therefore, a transfer that would work for all parties. With Jordan Henderson also getting on in age, Phillips may also be looked at as a replacement for him.

Naby Keita has failed to really settle on Merseyside, with inconsistent performances and persistent injury problems hampering the Guinean, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been linked with a move away after falling out of favour at Jurgen Klopp.

Up-and-coming attacking midfielder Curtis Jones would be a replacement for Chamberlain, and Phillips would be a great player to replace Keita's blend of quality in defence and attacking build-up. A transfer for Phillips would solve a problem position for Liverpool, and any departures would be filled by existing members of the squad.

And for the above reasoning, Phillips to transfer to Liverpool is currently odds on at 8/1.

West Ham Odds: 10/1

After 17 years and over 500 appearances for West Ham United, veteran midfielder Mark Noble announced he would be retiring at the end of this season. And so, the search begins for a Noble replacement for this high-flying West Ham side. It will be extremely difficult to find someone as dependable and consistent as Noble, but they will try.

One name that has been touted is Leeds' Phillips. With the Englishman's contract expiring in June 2024 and no indication as to whether an extension will be signed, West Ham may be able to sign him for a lower fee than expected. But if they need to spend big to land him, they will. The Hammers have not been shy in spending big money on signings in recent years, with Kurt Zouma, Said Benrahma and Pablo Fornals such signings.

With Declan Rice long being linked with a big-money move to a Premier League's top-six side, West Ham would receive a healthy sum if such a transfer were to arise, and so affording Phillips would not be an issue.

However, West Ham already have a player in the mould of Phillips in Tomáš Souček. Both Phillips and Souček play the same role to a high standard, but the Czech offers something a lot more important that Phillips does not: goals. Phillips has scored just one goal in his 41 Premier League appearances, meanwhile, Souček has managed to score 14 since the beginning of last season.

However, due to having a similar playstyle to Rice, Phillips could offer a similar service to that of this Three Lions teammate.

A move to the London Stadium is currently priced at 10/1.

Manchester Utd Odds: 12/1

Manchester United have needed a shake-up of their midfield options for some time now, and in the coming summer transfer window, it may happen.

United fans have long expressed their displeasure at their current midfielders, with the likes of Fred and Scott McTominay coming in for heavy criticism from the Old Trafford faithful. The pair, while hardworking, simply are not good enough. They do not have the technical quality, creativity or attacking intelligence to help Manchester United control games. Their lack of creativity means the midfield is not available as an attacking outlet, and so the onus is purely on attackers like Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes to create goalscoring opportunities.

With Paul Pogba showing inconsistent form and constantly being linked with a move away, he is not the answer to the club's midfield problems. Jesse Lingard is also reportedly leaving this summer.

Evidently this season, Matic isn’t the answer as the Serbian has been used sparingly, whilst Fred and McTominay are box to box midfielders that simply cannot play a defensive midfield role due to their lack of defensive awareness.

The odds of Phillips joining United are currently at 12/1.

Manchester City Odds: 14/1

With Brazilian Fernandinho approaching 37 years of age, Manchester City may be looking to move him on come the end of the season. With the Citizens looking to secure their fourth title in five years this season, a victory may be the best send-off they could have for Fernandinho, before signing a younger, more dynamic replacement in the summer.

Fernandinho’s contract also expires this June and there has been no move made in terms of an extension, so it is likely that this is his final season at the Etihad Stadium.

Phillips is one replacement that senior City officials may be looking at, with the Englishman's youth, Premier League experience and relatively low price-tag factors that could entice them to make a move. He would slot seamlessly into City's squad, either as a partner for Rodri or to be used interchangeably with the Spaniard.

A move to the Etihad Stadium for Phillips is priced at 14/1.

Tottenham Odds: 16/1

Tottenham have conceded 36 goals in their 29 Premier League games this season, a number beaten by only Manchester United (40). For context, eight-placed Wolves have conceded 26, 13th-place Brighton have conceded 36, and 19th-place Burnley have conceded 38. Simply put, 36 goals conceded is too much for a team who are aiming to qualify for the Champions League.

A reason they concede so many goals is because there is a lack of security in their midfield. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, while gifted, is not physical and quick enough to play as a sole holding midfielder, and neither of Harry Winks and Oliver Skipp are good enough.

While new arrival Rodrigo Bentancur has helped improve the midfield, having a partner like Kalvin Phillips beside him, who offers defensive stability but can also pick a pass, would greatly improve Tottenham's midfield. With Phillips winning 0.8 aerial duels a game in his 12 appearances this season, a figure better than Hojbjerg, Skipp or Winks, his physicality in midfield would make Tottenham better defensively and concede fewer goals.

Tottenham are currently priced at 16/1 to sign the Leeds midfielder.
