Former Leeds player Fabian Delph, now with Premiership side Aston Villa, will be hoping to prove he is the man to take the place of the retired midfielders Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard.

Doncaster born Danny Rose, now at Tottenham Hotspur, will stake his claim for a left back place following the retirement of Ashley Cole.

Defender John Stones, from Barnsley, has returned to the squad after making Hodgson's World Cup standby list for Brazil while regulars Gary Cahill and James Milner have both been called up.

The team play a friendly against Norway on 3 September then take on Switzerland five days later.

Hull MP calls neighbourhood meeting over waste issues

Hull North MP Diana Johnson has convened a meeting of Council officers, residents, Hull University and others to discuss the poor state of neighbourhoods in Newland and Avenue wards.

The local MP says she has received complaints from several residents in the area regarding the problems caused by private landlords and their tenants not meeting their responsibilities to dispose of waste properly and not keeping properties clean and tidy. This then has a knock-on effect on the rest of the area.

The meeting takes place at Hull’s Guildhall at 2pm today (Thursday 28 August).

There is a real problem in parts of my constituency about tenanted properties being neglected and not being properly maintained by private landlords. Rubbish is allowed to build up in gardens and the area then becomes run-down and unsightly. In Hull North there are large-scale private landlord lettings and homes in multiple occupation, most notably in Avenue, Newland and parts of Beverley and University Ward.

I want to talk to all those involved in the area to see what powers the Council have, and could use, to address conditions, which at their worst blight neighbourhoods. If additional powers are needed then I will fight for these in Parliament. I want local landlords to take responsibility for the properties they make a good living from and ensure that they are kept clean and tidy, with swift action taken against them if they don’t. Local landlords need to be good neighbours and have pride in this city.

The 24-year-old Uruguay international, who played for his country at the World Cup, has become a prime target for Tigers manager Steve Bruce, who has abandoned interest in Blackburn's Jordan Rhodes.

Reports in Italy have suggested a deal worth around £9.5million for Hernandez is almost complete, however Bruce is looking at it from a more cautious perspective.

It's delicate, but if we can pull it off it will be a record for the club. He's a hell of a player, but there's work to be done. It would be a huge one for us.

– Steve Bruce

Hull sold Long to Southampton for £12million earlier this month, after which they were linked with Rhodes, but Bruce said on Wednesday that potential deal was "dead and buried".

Uniform shops tailor-make clothes for obese children

New fears around childhood obesity have been raised as school uniform shops reveal they are now having to tailor-make clothes to fit larger children.

Figures from Public Health England show almost a quarter of pupils starting primary school in Leeds, Barnsley and Wakefield are now overweight or obese.

Over a third will be overweight by the time they leave primary school.

Brad Robertson from Rawcliffes Schoolwear says they are often asked for larger sizes:

Bruce delighted to have Dawson at the KC

Hull City boss Steve Bruce says signing Michael Dawson gives his defence a boost in experience.

Bruce has already pledged to rotate his squad should the Tigers overturn a 1-0 first leg deficit and reach the Europa League group stages.

Adding Dawson to his son Alex, captain Curtis Davies and James Chester gives the former Wigan and Sunderland boss options at the back:
