England midfielder Kalvin Phillips says he has no plans of leaving Manchester City despite his lack of minutes during his first season at the club.
The 27-year-old joined the blue side of Manchester during the 2022 summer transfer window after leaving Leed United. However, he struggled for game time last season under Pep Guardiola in a season which saw the club win a treble.
The 27-year-old made two Premier League starts as City became only the second English club to win the Premier League, Champions League, and FA Cup all in the same season.
“To be honest I was injured before I even went to City, so that is one of the main reasons why I was injured so much,” he said.
“City have been amazing to help me get back to full fitness and I eventually played a few more games for City and England, so credit to the medical staff at City for helping me.
“My intention is to stay there. We have just won the treble, so there is no reason for me to leave, other than if I am not playing I will obviously have to think about it.
“I cannot give it 12 months and say, ‘I am not playing so I am going to leave’. I came to Manchester City to win trophies and we won the trophies, but I didn’t play as much as I wanted to do.”
Phillips capped off a poor personal season by scoring his first England goal in Monday’s 7-0 hammering of North Macedonia at Old Trafford in a Euro 2024 qualifier.
