Dean Henderson replaces Tom Heaton in England squad

Dean Henderson has been called up to the England squad following the withdrawal of Tom Heaton through injury.

The goalkeeper, who is on loan at Sheffield United from Manchester United, will join up with Gareth Southgate’s squad at St. George’s Park on Wednesday, ahead of England’s European Qualifiers against Czech Republic and Bulgaria.

Henderson receives his first call-up to the senior squad after Heaton returned to Aston Villa for further assessment on an injury sustained during their 5-1 win against Norwich City last weekend.

“This is what dreams are made of… it’s a dream come true to receive my first England senior call up!!” said Henderson on Twitter.

Henderson, who has previously represented England from U16 through to U21 level, will be part of the 24-man squad for the trips to Czech Republic on Friday and for the match in Bulgaria next Monday.
