Jonny Howson

Leeds United vice-captain Jonny Howson has been called up to the provisional 40 man squad for U21 European Championships in the summer.

The squad will be reduced to 23 on 1st June and the tournament begins for England on the 8th June against Spain. Regardless of whether Howson makes the cut, it can only help him improve playing and training alongside the likes of Jack Wilshere, Andy Carroll and Micah Richards under the eye of Stuart Pearce.

Howson was called up for a friendly against Italy earlier in the year where he came off the bench. He was also called up to a squad a couple of months ago but had to withdraw due to injury. The achievement reflects his fantastic performance this season and is fully deserved.

We wish him all the best.
