West Ham United boss, David Moyes has revealed that the club offered Leeds United more than Manchester City did for midfielder, Kalvin Phillips.
England star Phillips joined Manchester City for £45m earlier this week, signing a six-year contract at the club.
Moyes said West Ham offered more money but Phillips was intent on a move to the Etihad.
The Hammers boss told the Daily Mail: “We bid more than that.
“We’re trying to be competitive with the big teams. If we can’t, we have to find another way of keeping up with them.”
