Calum gained widespread praise for his commanding and mature performances at centre back following his summer move from Southampton. The 19-year-old was outstanding in the win against Manchester City and maintained his level in the games against Crystal Palace and Everton. The versatile defender was rewarded with his first call-up to England's senior squad. "You learn from playing and training every day with players of this quality,” he said. “It's fantastic for me and I'm gaining confidence game by game. It's with the help from everyone at the club and the players and staff who have welcomed me. That's helped me settle in so quickly."
