Kalvin Phillips has joined West Ham on loan from Manchester City.

The England midfielder, 28, arrived at City in a £45million deal from Leeds in July 2022 but has struggled to break into Pep Guardiola's side. 

He has started just twice in all competitions this season and will now hope for some regular football in East London.

Phillips said: "I'm really pleased to be here. There's always been a lot of speculation about me moving to West Ham, so I'm really excited to get going now.

"There's so much to look forward to in the second half of the season for the club and I can't wait to be part of it.

"There's an unbelievable group here and if I can come in and add the quality that I know I'm capable of, I'm sure we can give the West Ham fans plenty to be excited about between now and the end of the season."

Hammers boss David Moyes added: "We are really pleased to bring a player of Kalvin's quality to West Ham.

"We've been big admirers of him for a long time and we believe that he will add strength and competition to our squad.

"Kalvin is an England international midfielder, with proven Premier League experience. We're excited to welcome him into the group and look forward to working with him."

Phillips is looking to cement his place in the England squad ahead of Euro 2024 this summer and was tracked by a number of clubs before choosing the Hammers.

Guardiola said ahead of this evening's FA Cup tie with Tottenham: "If I give him 10-15 games in a row he will play good but I did not give him that.

"I have players in the squad and decide we are looking for different things. I can only say how grateful I am for his behaviour off the pitch and hopefully he can get the minutes and next season we will see what happens.

"I wish him all the best for a short time in London."
