Kalvin Phillips has been heavily linked with an exit from the Etihad during the January transfer window, as he remains out of favour with Pep Guardiola.

However, according to the reports, Manchester United are keen on securing the English midfielder but may get disappointed if they make the move as Philips has no interest in joining the Red Devils.

In his previous comments, Philips made his intentions of not going to the Old Trafford clear. He said: “Going to United? No, there was never any chance of me going there. You know my loyalty to Leeds.

“My family as well – they’re all Leeds fans. I was honored that United wanted me, such a big team and one of the biggest teams in the world.

“But no, I had to stay loyal to Leeds and choose to go to the other side of Manchester.

“It’s just the way I am, the way I think and the way I ‘Il always be. I want to be loyal to the people who’ve given me the biggest opportunity in the world. Leeds were the first team to sign me, I made sure that was one of the main things I’d do.”
