Sterling had made the headlines earlier this week when he called in sick from training, and reportedly had told the club he did not want to travel with the side on tour.

After missing training on Wednesday and Thursday, Sterling returned to Liverpool’s Melwood training facilities for practice yesterday.

As the club continues to hold out for an offer of nearly $80 million for his services, Sterling will be expected to board the plane to Bangkok tomorrow.

Not included in the 30-man roster are the names of Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini and Jose Enrique, which shows their futures at Anfield are up in the air.

Philippe Coutinho and new signing Roberto Firmino will not travel with the team after representing Brazil in the Copa America, along with Emre Can who has been given some extra rest after playing for Germany in the U-21 European Championship earlier this summer.
