Swansea City pair Sam Surridge and Ben Wilmot and Charlton Athletic's Conor Gallagher have been called into the England MU21s squad to play Slovenia and Austria.

Head coach Aidy Boothroyd has brought the Swans duo in on Monday to replace Morgan Gibbs-White (back), Reiss Nelson (knee) and Mason Greenwood (back), who have all withdrawn injured.

And Gallagher joined the squad on Tuesday, after initially being with the MU20s squad for their games with Italy and Czech Republic

Both Surridge and Wilmot are currently on loan at the Liberty Stadium from AFC Bournemouth and Watford respectively, while Gallagher is at the Valley on loan from Chelsea.

For striker Surridge, it’s a first England call-up at any level while defender Wilmot was involved in last month’s squad as the Young Lions started their new U21 EURO qualifying campaign with victories over Turkey and Kosovo.

The U21s squad will train at St. George’s Park until Thursday when they head to Maribor for Friday’s game with Slovenia.

It’s then back to Milton Keynes for their next qualifying game with Austria at stadiummk.
