The winger has not changed his stance on returning to the young three lions.

But manager Lee Carsley insists nothing has changed with the forward as he announces his squad for the game against Slovenia next week.

“No intentions or suggestions were made on that regard [switching to Ghana], Callum is still committed to England and we look forward to having him back,” said the ex-Everton player.

“Callum is a player that we really like,” he added. “I’ve had some really good conversations with him and his advisor and Callum felt that it wasn’t the right time for him at the minute to come with England.

“He’s stayed back at Chelsea to work on his development there. I respected that decision and that was it really.”
