Grady Diangana has been called into the England U21 squad for their 2021 UEFA U21 Championship qualifiers against Turkey and Kosovo.

The 21-year-old winger, currently at Slaven Bilic's West Bromwich Albion on a season-long loan, is in Aidy Boothroyd's squad for the first time after previously impressing at U20 level.

Diangana joins fellow Hammer Nathan Trott, who is also gaining experience in the EFL on loan at AFC Wimbledon, in the selection.

The Young Lions' qualifying campaign gets underway in Izmit on Friday, when they take on Turkey, before they return home to play Kosovo at Hull City's KCOM Stadium on Monday evening.

Diangana has enjoyed a superb start to life with the Baggies, scoring three times in four Championship games - including the winner in Saturday's 3-2 victory against Blackburn Rovers.
