West Ham United star Declan Rice was pictured having a one-to-one chat with England manager Gareth Southgate in training.
Rice was once again called up by Southgate as England prepare for Euro 2020 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo.
The West Ham midfield enforcer has carried his superb form last season into this.
Declan a Southgate favourite
The 20-year-old - yes Rice is still just twenty years old - was excellent in West Ham's back-to-back Premier League wins over Watford and Norwich City.
Rice has proved a real favourite of Southgate's.
After all the England boss did push for the Hammer to switch allegiance from Republic of Ireland to the country of his birth.

And Rice certainly seems to be at the forefront of Southgate's thinking.
That's if pictures from England training are anything to go by.
Rice was caught on camera having a one-to-one chat with Southgate.
Centre of attention
He then joined in a session involving the likes of Raheem Sterling, Ross Barkley, Mason Mount, Marcus Rashford, James Maddison and Trent Alexander-Arnold.
West Ham fans will be hoping to see Rice shine for England in the upcoming games.
But they will also be wary that West Ham are a Declan Rice injury away from something of a crisis given Manuel Pellegrini's lack of quality back-up in that defensive midfield area.
Pictures as Rice trains with England
Everyone at West Ham is wishing young Declan good luck.
He will undoubtedly do the Hammers proud.
