The Town skipper joins club team-mates Omar Beckles and Aaron Pierre with the Spice Boys for the coming week's international break.

Grenada have Concacaf Nations League group clashes against St Kitts & Nevis and Belize to confirm their place in the 2021 Gold Cup.

Bolton-born midfielder Norburn qualifies for the Caribbean nation through his grandfather. He is Town's third international, meaning next weekend's League One clash at Doncaster was postponed.

Sam Ricketts said: "Grenada have called up Ollie Norburn. We obviously have a few players who qualify for Grenada.

"They've been hinting and talks have been going on for a long time but this time they've called Ollie Norburn up.

"It's something he's keen to do, especially now they're so close to qualifying. I'm delighted for all of them."

Town defender Ro-Shaun Williams also qualifies for Grenada, who are on the verge of making their first Gold Cup tournament – which will go ahead in 2021 – since 2011.

Midfielder Sean Goss, who was born in Germany, is being monitored by Northern Ireland, of whom he has descent through his grandparents, for a possible call up.
