Blades Academy goalkeeper Marcus Dewhurst has been called up as a training goalkeeper with England's U17s squad.

The 16-year-old is in the squad for preparations for next summer's Euro Finals on home soil with games against Portugal, Russia and Germany this month.

Dewhurst is included after impressing for United's U18s this season and Academy boss Travis Binnion is delighted: "Marcus is progressing well and hopefully he impresses further during these sessions with England."

In addition, a number of United youngsters are also likely to be called up for youth internationals including Rhys Norrington-Davies (Wales), David Parkhouse (Northern Ireland) and Jordan Doherty (Republic of Ireland).
