Manchester United full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka has withdrawn from the England squad because of a back injury.

Wan-Bissaka was named in Gareth Southgate's senior side for the first time for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo.

An England statement said the 21-year-old had returned to his club "due to an issue with his back".

With Trent Alexander-Arnold and Kieran Trippier already in the squad, no replacements are planned.

England play Bulgaria on Saturday at Wembley (17:00 BST) before entertaining Kosovo three days later at Southampton's St Mary's Stadium (19:45 BST).
