Newcastle United have fresh contacts for Kalvin Phillips

Newcastle United is ready to resurrect its interest in Kalvin Phillips late in the January window, as Eddie Howe wants the experienced star.

According to Eleonara Trotta, Newcastle United is still very much interested in Kalvin Phillips, with the magpies ready to resurrect their interest. Eddie Howe had wanted the experienced 28-year-old Premier League winner for some time now and could make a late dash this month.

Kalvin Phillips to Newcastle United?

Newcastle United had wanted a midfielder for some time now and had set sights on many options. Owing to financial difficulties owing to FFP regulations, the Magpies have not managed to bring forward any deals in a position in which they need reinforcements.

Kalvin Phillips has always been an option for them, but there are challenges to acquiring the 28-year-old Premier League winner from Manchester City. They have remained in talks for the midfielder during different periods, but so far, nothing has materialised into an offer of sorts.

Manchester City are prepared to offload him in this window and would ideally pursue a full sale. However, they might open their doors for a loan deal if it comes with clauses that allow them to recoup good money in the summer.

Newcastle United have reportedly resurrected their pursuit of Phillips and could start negotiations after January 20. The move would suit all parties, especially the midfielder, who remains keen to play regularly. He also has an England place at stake, which he could lose with more time on the bench.

Kalvin Phillips’ future away from Manchester City.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is not interested in playing Phillips on a regular basis. In fact, he has not selected the 28-year-old Premier League winner when there were shortages in midfield. Hence, the suggestion is that he could leave on loan or permanently.

While there are clubs like Crystal Palace and Fulham in the chase, Phillips might prefer to join a bigger side. Juventus have already ruled out a move, which probably leaves Newcastle United as the favourites to sign the 28-year-old Premier League winner.

Things could accelerate in the last days of the window, with Newcastle United certain to pursue the midfielder to strengthen their ranks.
