Leeds United captain Jonny Howson has earned his first call up for the England under 21 squad.
The midfielder has been called up for the squad by manager, Stuart Pearce, for their friendly in Italy on Tuesday night.
Howson has been in fantastic form this season for Leeds and as helped the side to challenge for promotion from the Championship.
He has also chipped in with eight goals including his first hat trick for the club in the 4-1 win at Scunthorpe United in October.
The 22 year old who came through the Leeds United academy is the first player to earn a call up for England since Fabian Delph in 2008.
