Kyle Walker-Peters has withdrawn from international duty with the England Under-21s because of a thigh injury.

The Tottenham defender signed a new contract earlier this month that will see him stay at the club until the summer of 2021.

He was called up to the Three Lions’ Under-21s squad for the Toulon Tournament, where England won their first game 2-1 against China.

But Walker-Peters has returned to Spurs after picking up a thigh injury.

According to the Sun, Tottenham hope he will be fit in in time to join pre-season training from the beginning.

Meanwhile, Harry Winks has undergone surgery on his ankle and also hopes to return in time for pre-season with Spurs.

The midfielder missed the majority of the season after suffering a recurrence of the ankle injury that saw him miss the end of the 2016/17 campaign.

Winks might have been involved in England’s World Cup squad had he not hurt his ankle again – he had broke into the senior team last year after a string of impressive displays for Tottenham.

Hopefully both he and Walker-Peters will be fit and ready to play a bigger part for club and country next term.
