Everton's Osman taking Australia trip seriously

Known as a prankster in the Everton ranks, Leon Osman will put his practical jokes aside as the team prepares for their pre-season trip in Australia.

The 29-year old midfielder admits to being a jokester when the Toffees travel but says that a long trip down under may not be the ideal time to play his customary pranks.

"I am looking forward to going to Australia though it will be a long flight," Osman told Everton's official website. "I am known as a prankster on these trips, but on a 22-hour flight you need to sleep yourself at some point.

"If you've played pranks on the others while they have been asleep then they will get me back. I think it will be tough for me on the plane. It will be amazing to go to Australia.

"Tim Cahill is always talking it up and has said we should all go over there so it will be nice to go over and see if he is right."
