Kalvin Phillips’ season at West Ham could be over after injury

Kalvin Phillips’ season at West Ham United could be over after picking up an injury.

The England international, 28, joined from Manchester City in January on loan until the end of the campaign.

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

It is yet to be decided where the midfielder will undergo his rehabilitation with both club medical departments currently in discussions.

West Ham have three games of their season remaining, but Phillips is ineligible to face his parent club on May 19.

Phillips moved to the London Stadium in the winter window in search of more regular first-team football but has made just three starts in all competitions.

He was also involved in an incident with a supporter following the defeat to Newcastle United in March where he was filmed showing his middle finger to the fan after being called “useless” as he was boarding the team bus.

“Kalvin’s a human being and what he needs is support and people to help him, which is what we’ll do,” Moyes said at the time. “We need our fans to give all our players the support they require.

“Kalvin’s a really good player and I do believe we can still make something out of the time we’ve got with him here.”

Phillips has 31 caps for his country and — injury permitting — will be hoping to be included when Gareth Southgate selects his squad for Euro 2024 later this month.

West Ham — ninth in the Premier League — are next in action against Chelsea on Sunday.
