It's a strange clause is that one. Why restrict it to just a few clubs?
A big reason he came to us in the first place was to be closer to his family who I think live somewhere around the Manchester area, so I'm guessing he wants to remain close.

Re: ARTICLE: Pope named in England squad

Although he is yet to play in the Prem, Phillips looks a much better holding-type midfielder than the likes of Rice, or Dier, from what I've seen. Gutted we never signed him in the end - he's probably worth nearly double now.

We are crying out for a full back who can overlap and deliver Trippier-type crosses for our strikers.
