Wantaway Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling has been included in the club’s 30-man squad to head off on a pre-season tour of Thailand, Australia and Malaysia on Sunday.
Sterling, who missed his first two days back at training earlier this week, is still determined to seal a move away from the club this summer, and it is still debatable as to wether he will actually turn up to jet off to the Far East.
The 20-year-old will be joined on the tour by a selection of the club’s new signings. James Milner, Adam Bogdan, Danny Ings and Divock Origi, who has only just joined up with his new teammates from Lille, are all taking the trip, though Roberto Firmino will miss out due to his involvement in the Copa America.

However, there is no room for Mario Balotelli, Jose Enrique or Fabio Borini, who are all mysteriously absent.

All three have been linked with moves away this summer, though there has been no reason as yet pertaining to their absences.
