Rory Holden, also of City U23s, has been named in Northern Ireland's squad who face Spain in their UEFA Euro U21 qualification campaign.

Goalkeeper Alhaji Sesay has made the Sierra Leone shortlist for their clash with Ethiopia next week in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

And Jamie Taylor and Joe Low, of City's U17s group, will join a training camp with Wales U18 squad.
