Manchester City new signing Kalvin Phillips is delighted to be playing with Kevin De Bruyne.

The former Leeds United star left his boyhood club for City this summer in a big money transfer.

Speaking to the club's website after the finalisation of the deal, Phillips admitted he is glad he no longer has to mark midfielders of the quality of De Bruyne when facing City.

He stated: "You could say you're spoiled for choice (at Manchester City) to be fair!

"There are some amazing players, Kevin De Bruyne's one of them.

"I played against him, and I've had to mark him in a few games so he's one of the players that I can't wait to play with."
