11 November 2015, 13:09

London - Chelsea defender Ola Aina has been included in the England Under-21s roster by Head Coach Gareth Southgate, ahead of the UEFA European U21 Championship qualifiers against Bosnia-Herzegovina and Switzerland.

Brentford midfielder John Swift will join Aina in the squad, with the availability of Liverpool's Jordon Ibe and Everton’s Tyias Browning up in the air, as both players have stayed back at their respective clubs due to injuries.

The word from the England camp is that the injured duo remain part of the squad as club medics are attempting to put them in tip - top condition before the game against Switzerland.
