Leeds and Republic of Ireland legend John Giles joined Nathan Murphy to discuss Kalvin Phillips's potential move to Premier League Champions Manchester City.

Sky Sports have reported that Manchester City is looking to strengthen their midfield after the departure of Fernandinho by signing Leeds United and England midfielder Kalvin Phillips. Sky Sports also reported that the midfielder would cost Manchester City £50 million.

Giles discussed the speculation about Phillips heading to Manchester City, and whether he feels that the Leeds man would be a good fit.

“Yes, I think so because they talk about him being the defensive midfielder, but I think he could do more, but I don't think he's being asked to do it,” Giles said.

“I think his distribution is very good. When I see him hitting the long pass, he's well able to do it with both feet, but I get the impression that he is only the defensive player at Leeds and there isn't much more expected of him.

“Whereas maybe if he does go to City, I expect more of him. If I was his manager, I'd say to him you have the ability, but you have to be more creative, you've got to dominate more. I'd expect him to be more creative.

“He has the ability to do it,” Giles added. “He'll be around fantastic players”.

Phillips had an injury-riddled season, only appearing 16 times for the Yorkshire side, scoring two goals in the process.

Phillips was chosen for Gareth Southgate's England squad as they face Hungary, Germany, Italy and then finally, Hungary again in Molineux.

Off The Ball will have live commentary as Stephen Kenny's Republic of Ireland will take on Armenia in Yerevan as they kick start their Nations League campaign and go in searching for their first-ever win in the competition.
