Dean Henderson will link up with England at St. George's Park on Wednesday

Dean Henderson has received his first England senior men’s call-up following the withdrawal of Tom Heaton through injury.

The goalkeeper, who is on loan at Sheffield United from Manchester United, will link up with Gareth Southgate’s squad at St. George’s Park on Wednesday.

The decision was taken after Heaton returned to his club for further assessment on an injury sustained during Aston Villa’s win against Norwich City last weekend.

Henderson, who has previously represented England from U16 through to U21 level, will now be part of the 24-man Three Lions squad to travel to Czech Republic and Bulgaria for the forthcoming UEFA EURO 2020 qualifiers.
