West Ham have agreed a deal with Manchester City to sign England midfielder Kalvin Phillips on loan for the rest of the season.

However, he has struggled under Pep Guardiola and has only started twice this term in all competitions.

Phillips, who is also interesting Juventus, now appears set to have a medical in London later this week.

Personal terms are not expected to be a problem, with the Hammers set to cover Phillips' salary and there will reportedly be an option to make the move permanent.
