Former Shrewsbury favourite Dean Henderson has received his first call-up to the England senior national side.

Dean Henderson has been called up to the Three Lions (AMA)

Goalkeeper Henderson, who spent a season on loan from Manchester United two years ago, helped Shrews to the League One play-off final.

The Sheffield United loanee, 22, is now impressing in the Premier League and has been drafted in to replace Villa's Tom Heaton.

Gareth Southgate's Three Lions play European Championship qualifies in Czech Republic and Bulgaria on Friday and Monday, respectively.
