Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has been called into the England squad for Euro 2020.
He replaces Dean Henderson, who has a hip injury which would limit his ability to train throughout the tournament.
Ramsdale was part of the initial 33-man squad before getting culled when it was cut to 26.
He will likely be third-choice goalkeeper and has never played a senior international game.
Potential Patricio replacement?
The Daily Mail reported earlier this month that Ramsdale was a potential target for Wolves.
That’s because Rui Patricio is reportedly set to leave for Roma at the end of Euro 2020.
The latest is that Ramsdale is apparently not looking to leave Sheffield United.
But if Wolves were serious and willing to offer him a route back to the Premier League, would he turn it down?
That’s especially pertinent now he may well have senior international ambitions.
When everyone’s fit, Henderson, Jordan Pickford and Nick Pope are Gareth Southgate’s three goalkeeping selections.
With Ramsdale and West Brom’s Sam Johnstone both having been relegated, they’d both likely need to get back into the top flight to stay in consideration.
But Ramsdale has been relegated in back-to-back seasons and lacks the authority, experience and calm of Patricio.
This summer experience will help him and it remains to be seen whether Wolves will go for Ramsdale in a serious way. Jose Sa looks a more likely goalkeeping option at this stage.
