Things got a little bit more comfortable when it came to our 23-year-old Academy graduate when manager Marcelo Bielsa announced the squad that would be travelling to Australia for the tour Down Under as Phillips is one of those to make the trip.

Kiko Casilla, Kamil Miazek, Barry Douglas, Liam Cooper, Stuart Dallas, Gaetano Berardi, Bryce Hosannah, Clarke Oduor, Adam Forshaw, Pablo Hernandez, Jack Harrison, Kalvin Phillips, Jordan Stevens, Mateusz Bogusz, Kemar Roofe, Patrick Bamford.

The team headed out on Saturday ahead of our two games against Manchester United and Western Sydney Wanderers, and the travelling party is a decent mix with youngsters included.

The notable omissions are new signings Helder Costa, Jack Clarke and Ben White, along with goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell.

The inclusion of Phillips, especially given recent links to Tottenham Hotspur, at least make a sale less likely you would think.
