Demarai Gray has left England's Under-19s squad to return to Birmingham for treatment on an injury.

The winger had joined up with England's Under-19 squad for three European Championship qualifiers but an ankle issue has meant he has returned to the Midlands.

Manager Lee Clark told the Birmingham Mail: "Demarai has returned to us.

"It was because of his ankle problem, the one that meant I had to take him off in the Fulham game.

"But this is just more of a precautionary thing and not too serious."
