Manchester City have agreed a £45million deal to sign Leeds United midfielder Calvin Phillips.

City will pay £42million for the 26-year-old’s transfer, with potential bonuses of up to £3million.

City, the champions of the English Premier League, made Phillips a prime target in the summer transfer window, with the departure of Fernandinho after nine seasons with the team.

Phillips is a graduate of Leeds United School and has played 214 first-team appearances since 2015.
