England squad mock Patrick Bamford and Kalvin Phillips

Leeds United have added yet another player to the senior England squad this week as Marcelo Bielsa celebrates more recognition.

Kalvin Phillips has finally been joined by Patrick Bamford after he took the Premier League by storm over the past year.

The Whites striker looks to have settled in perfectly at St George’s Park and has been at the brunt of jokes this week already.

Usually pictured together, Phillips and Bamford have been subjected to some light-hearted mockery already.

Shared by LUFC Insider on their official Instagram page, there was even time to add a Ben White joke into the mix.

“Leeds friends,” they joke.

They went on to say: “Where’s Ben? You off to Facetime him? to which Phillips responded they were going to later.

Here we go…

Things could have been very different should the summer have gone another way last year after promotion.

White was heavily linked with a return to Elland Road, but after numerous bids he remained where he was and has since gone to Arsenal.

Should that bid have prevailed, it could have been three Leeds players in the Three Lions squad, and who would have thought that nearly three years ago.

Gareth Southgate was watching all two of the three during our time in the Championship, and that is all down the Bielsa.

Bamford could be set for his senior debut this evening, and there would be no mocking should he find the target against Hungary.
