Kalvin Phillips is parting ways with Manchester City after 18 months since he signed with the club. However, he does not harbor any negative feelings toward the Etihad Stadium despite not receiving regular minutes on the pitch during his time there.

An agreement was finalized on Tuesday between City and West Ham United to allow Phillips to move to London Stadium on loan for the remainder of the season. West Ham will cover his entire salary, as well as pay City a loan fee, with an option to purchase the player in the summer for approximately £34 million.

This move was crucial for Phillips as he failed to secure a spot in the starting lineup at City, even after some favorable opportunities such as when Rodri was suspended for three games. Despite his difficulties, Phillips will leave the club with a positive outlook.

It is reported that Phillips believes he is leaving City as a better player, and he holds no regrets about his time there. Despite not playing many games, he has genuinely benefited from his time at the club, surrounded by world-class players and training under the guidance of Pep Guardiola.

While the 28-year-old may have faced challenges during his stint at City, he was able to learn and grow from his experiences, which is certainly a valuable takeaway. Phillips’ optimistic perspective regarding his time at City is a testament to his professionalism and determination to improve.

Moving forward, it remains to be seen if Phillips can translate what he has learned into his performances at West Ham. Although he was not deemed fit for City by manager Pep Guardiola, Phillips’ transfer to West Ham indicates that they see potential in him.

Overall, Phillips’ positive mindset and commitment to making the most of his experience at City reflect his maturity and growth, which will undoubtedly serve him well in his future endeavors.
