New York City FC midfielder Jack Harrison reveals that he missed his flight to link up with the England Under-21s side for the first time.

New York City FC midfielder Jack Harrison has revealed that he missed his flight to link up with the England Under-21s side.

Boss Aidy Boothroyd has selected Harrison for the first time ahead of fixtures with Scotland and Andorra, but the youngster - who has impressed in the MLS - has admitted that things did not go according to plan at the beginning of the week.

The 20-year-old is quoted by The Mirror as saying: "I missed the flight. I tried to contact someone at the FA but it was in the middle of the night.

"I decided to book the first flight out on Monday morning. I left New York at 8am on Monday and arrived here (St George's Park) at 10.30pm on Monday night. I'm still trying to figure the time difference out!

"It was $1,500 to fly to Heathrow. Then I hired a car service to get to St George's Park. I had to make it here!"

Harrison has been linked with a return to England, with Manchester City said to be leading Manchester United in the race for his signature.
