Burnley defender Michael Keane has been handed his first international call-up after Glen Johnson withdrew from the England squad through injury.

Keane, 23, who has played for England at under-19, under-20 and under-21 levels will report to St George’s Park on Tuesday with the rest of the squad.

He is drafted in after Stoke’s Johnson was ruled out of Saturday’s World Cup qualifier against Malta.

Keane has featured in all of Burnley’s Premier League games this term.
