Four West Ham United Academy youngsters have earned England call-ups for this month's internationals.

Grady Diangana, Joseph Anang, Ajibola Alese and Amadou Diallo will join the Three Lions squads at U21, U20, U19 and U17 levels respectively.

Diangana, currently enjoying a loan spell in the Championship with West Bromwich Albion, will hope to make his debut for Aidy Boothroyd's U21 side as they continue their 2021 UEFA U21 Championship qualifying campaign.

England sit top of their group with three wins from three and will defend their 100 percent record when they travel to Albania on Friday 15 November.

They follow that with a friendly against the Netherlands in Doetinchem on Tuesday 19 November.

Goalkeeper Anang earns his first U20 call-up, having previously been in the England U19 squad. His team play an away friendly in Portugal on Thursday 14 November, before meeting Iceland at Wycombe's Adams Park on Tuesday 19 November.

Centre-back Alese has been gaining experience this term with a loan spell at Accrington Stanley and will aim to add to his two U19 caps with UEFA U19 Championship qualifying round fixtures against Luxembourg, North Macedonia and Bosnia & Herzegovina, all to be played in North Macedonia.

Finally, Diallo is in an U17 squad for the second time this season, as they take on Denmark and Czech Republic in friendlies at Alfreton Town and Solihull Moors on Friday 15 and Tuesday 19 November respectively.
