Kalvin Phillips’ West Ham United career may have come to an early end due to an injury, likely marking his final appearance for the Hammers. This development was reported by The Athletic, which has increasingly shown strong connections at the club.

The 28-year-old England international, who joined on loan from Manchester City until the end of the season, is expected to sign for his former club Leeds United for a significantly reduced fee after a disappointing loan stint at the London Stadium.

Phillips has made 10 appearances for David Moyes’ side, including eight in the Premier League, but is now set to return to City for treatment on an unspecified injury.

Discussions are ongoing between the medical departments of both clubs regarding where Phillips will undergo his rehabilitation.

With only three games left in West Ham’s season, and Phillips being ineligible to face his parent club Manchester City on May 19, his participation for the remainder of the season is in doubt.

Phillips moved to the London Stadium during the winter transfer window in search of more regular first-team action but only managed to start three games across all competitions.

Additionally, Phillips was involved in a contentious incident with a supporter after a defeat to Newcastle United in March, where he was caught on video responding with a middle finger to a fan who called him “useless” as he was boarding the team bus.

Phillips loan move has been a massive failure and it’s hard not to conclude that his transfer is one of the contributing factors to Moyes leaving the club.

    No surprise

    Moyes outlay €278m net plus cost of Phillips. Two very good strikers been and gone at huge loss amongst many other poor buys. An old squad with up to 12 players leaving this summer…. I could go on. Moyes has not been the great manager all the pundits have raved about. The football has been quite simply boring, spending 90 mins wondering when the opposition is going to score is not my idea of entertainment.

    Phillips is a testament to Moyes arrogance and I believe getting him was his way of showing he is the boss which has backfired horrendously.

    As for the third tier trophy, only the last two rounds were against vaguely decent opposition and the Irons were very lucky to win through. I believe he has flattered to deceive and the team has done well despite, not because of, him. Moyes should have gone years ago.

      I agree entirely. The oft repeated trope of Moyes being West Ham’s most successful manager is simply not true. If you factor in the ressources at his disposal, which he has squandered he is the worst since Lou Macari. Arrogant and stubborn, he has burnt a small group of his favourite players, alienated the rest of squad and shown the youth, no matter how brilliant they are they will not get a chance on his watch. Should have sacked two years ago.
