Newcastle's Kalvin Phillips Transfer in Doubt as Premier League Rivals Circle

Newcastles Kalvin Phillips Transfer in Doubt as Premier League Rivals Circle

Newcastle Stalling Over Kalvin Phillips Signing

Newcastle United's potential transfer for midfielder Kalvin Phillips is said to be in doubt as two Premier League rivals show interest in the England star.

Disruption to Long-Term Plans

The Magpies have been heavily linked with a move for Phillips, who currently plays for Manchester City. However, they are hesitating to make a move as signing Phillips could potentially disrupt their long-term plans.

Newcastle's Financial Considerations

Newcastle's hesitation is reportedly due to the financial implications of signing Phillips. City is demanding a £5 million loan fee, which may include an obligation to buy for a similar amount they initially purchased him for - £40 million. This financial commitment could impact Newcastle's summer transfer plans due to Financial Fair Play restrictions.

Competition from Crystal Palace and Fulham

Crystal Palace and Fulham have also shown interest in Phillips and could offer him regular game time ahead of the Euros this summer. The delay in Newcastle's decision could potentially allow these clubs to swoop in and secure Phillips' signature.

Continental Interest

Phillips has also attracted attention from European clubs, with Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain eyeing a loan deal. However, City would prefer a permanent sale and may use the funds from Phillips' transfer to sign Fulham's Joao Palhinha.

Overall, Newcastle's pursuit of Kalvin Phillips may face obstacles as Premier League rivals and European clubs look to secure the England star's services.
