Gareth Southgate: 'Jon Flanagan could play for senior England side'

England Under-21 manager Gareth Southgate believes that Liverpool defender Jon Flanagan may be called up to the country's senior side for this summer's World Cup.

Gareth Southgate has revealed that Jon Flanagan could be called up to the senior England side for this summer's World Cup.

The Liverpool defender was included in Southgate's Under-21 squad earlier this year, but did not play during their European Championship qualifiers.

However, the Young Lions manager told the Liverpool Echo: "I went to see Jon and Brendan [Rodgers] at Liverpool about a month ago, because I feel he does deserve to be in our squad.

"He's one we'll be looking to involve in the summer, if of course he doesn't force his way into the seniors.

"I know within our Under-21s there are lads that can use the ball, there's no question about that. So for many, it's just a case of being given the opportunity and having a manager and a coach that has belief in them."

Flanagan has made 20 appearances for the Premier League leaders this season.
