Manchester City have completed the signing of Leeds United's Kalvin Phillips on a six-year deal.

England midfielder Phillips joins City after making 235 appearances over eight seasons at Elland Road.

The 26-year-old becomes Pep Guardiola's third summer signing following Erling Haaland and Stefan Ortega Moreno.

"I am absolutely delighted to have joined Manchester City. City have again proved to be the best team in the country," Phillips said.

City are understood to have agreed a £45m deal for Phillips, who had two years left on his Leeds deal.

He added: "[The club] have an amazing squad and a manager in Pep Guardiola who is rightly considered to be the finest in the world.

"To be able to play under Pep and learn from him and his coaching staff as well as be part of such a fantastic squad is a prospect that I am incredibly excited about."

Phillips made his international debut in September 2020 and was named England men's Player of the Year for 2020-21, having played every game at the delayed Euro 2020 tournament.
