Leeds United fans on Twitter were momentarily worried after Phil Hay posted a misleading tweet about Kalvin Phillips.
A fan asked whether or not the midfielder would be travelling to Australia for the club’s pre-season tour to which the journalist simply replied: “Phillips is due to go.”
Without context, it looked as if Hay was confirming the midfielder was on his way out of Elland Road as fans have been worried about his potential departure for weeks.
On Friday, Tottenham were linked with a move for the Leeds man.
The former Yorkshire Evening Post writer’s tweet was in fact a positive update on Phillips, but that didn’t stop some fans worrying.
