Leeds United fans on Twitter are excited about seeing Kalvin Phillips included in the squad that travelled to Australia.
The Thorp Arch product is heavily linked with a move away from Elland Road this summer.
Aston Villa are strongly rumoured to be interested in signing him, while The Mirror reported this week that Tottenham Hotspur have also joined the race.
Alarm bells would have sounded if the 23-year-old was left in the UK, but he's included in Marcelo Bielsa's squad for the pre-season tour and Leeds fans are delighted.

It doesn't necessarily indicate that Phillips is definitely staying in West Yorkshire, but it is a good sign.
Bielsa doesn't mess around and if he suspected that the midfielder's head had been turned then perhaps the Argentine would have left him back at Leeds, but the fact that he's there is certainly a good sign.
Bielsa's side take on Western Sydney Wanderers and Manchester United down under.
