Late England call-up for Wickham

IPSWICH Town striker Connor Wickham has been added to the England Under-21 squad for their friendly against Germany in Wiesbaden on Tuesday.

The 17-year-old has previously won caps at Under-17 and Under-19 level but this is his first call up at this level.

The Blues are reported to be interested in Arsenal youngster Jay Emmanuel-Thomas who has previously been on loan at Blackpool and Doncaster. QPR are also said to be interested in taking the striker on loan.
