Quansah, Wharton make provisional England Euros squad

England manager Gareth Southgate has picked the uncapped Jarrad Branthwaite, Curtis Jones, Jarell Quansah and Adam Wharton in his provisional squad for Euro 2024.

Everton centre-back Branthwaite was key in his side securing Premier League safety this season, while Liverpool centre-back Quansah and team-mate Jones, who plays in midfield, helped the Reds finish third in the top flight.

Wharton impressed at Palace following his move from Blackburn Rovers in the winter transfer window and his team-mates Eberechi Eze, Marc Guehi and Dean Henderson have also been included by Southgate.

Chelsea centre-back Levi Colwill, West Ham forward Jarrod Bowen and Burnley keeper James Trafford have also made a training squad which will include about 30 players.

The squad is set to be officially confirmed at 14:00 BST on Tuesday.

There are reports Ajax midfielder Jordan Henderson has been omitted, while Chelsea winger Raheem Sterling has also missed out.

Brentford striker Ivan Toney, along with Manchester United midfielder Kobbie Mainoo and left-back Luke Shaw, are also in Southgate’s initial selection.

The training squad will join up on Wednesday, 29 May prior to friendlies against Bosnia-Herzegovina on 3 June and Iceland on 7 June.

Southgate’s side will then open their Euro 2024 campaign with a Group C game against Serbia in Gelsenkirchen on 16 June.
