Dean Henderson has been called into the England squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Montenegro and Kosovo.
The uncapped Sheffield United goalkeeper, on loan from Manchester United, has come in for Aston Villa’s Tom Heaton who has a calf problem.
Heaton missed Sunday’s 2-1 defeat at Wolves after picking up the injury in training.
Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkely has also withdrawn from the squad because of an ankle injury but there are no plans to replace him.
An FA statement read: “Ross Barkley and Tom Heaton have been ruled out of England’s forthcoming UEFA EURO 2020 qualifiers through injury.
“Goalkeeper Dean Henderson has been added to Gareth Southgate’s squad in place of Aston Villa’s Heaton but no replacements are planned for Chelsea’s Barkley.
“Henderson will arrive at St George’s Park on Monday as England’s now 26-man squad begin preparations for their final fixtures of 2019.”
Henderson has helped the promoted Blades to fifth in the Premier League after Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Tottenham.
