Bayer Leverkusen star Leon Bailey for England call-up?

Bayer Leverkusen's Leon Bailey is tipped for a shock call-up to the England national team.

Bayer Leverkusen starlet Leon Bailey could allegedly be in line for an England call-up ahead of this summer's World Cup finals in Russia.

According to The Sun, the winger has turned down the chance to represent Jamaica, his country of birth, at international level and the Three Lions have been touted as an alternative option.

Bailey is eligible for an England call-up through his grandparentage, and his father Craig Butler is reportedly due to hold talks with Three Lions technical director Dan Ashworth about his son's international future next week.

The 20-year-old is considered one of the hottest prospects in European football, scoring 11 goals for Leverkusen this season and attracting interest from Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal.

Butler has refused to rule out the possibility of his son making Gareth Southgate's World Cup squad.
