Tom Ince has been omitted from the England under-21 squad at his own request after choosing to concentrate on his football at Derby County.
The forward has been helping the Rams in their quest for Championship promotion having joined on loan from Premier League club Hull, where he failed to make an impact.
It's a decision which hasn't gone down well with England under-21 manager Gareth Southgate, and could yet cost Ince his place in future squads.
Speaking to the press today, Southgate said:
Former Blackpool midfielder Tom Ince has joined Championship high flyers Derby from Hull until the end of the season.
The Rams came agonisingly close to promotion last season after defeat in the play-off final, and hope Ince will give them enough quality to secure one of the two automatic places this time around.
Hull will pay up to £2.3million for Tom Ince after they reached a compensation agreement with Blackpool over the winger.
Ince, 22, joined the Tigers during the summer after his deal with the Seasiders expired but, due to his age, Blackpool were entitled to recoup a fee for the England Under-21 international.
The two clubs were understood to be attending a tribunal last week in order to determine how much Ince would cost Hull and Blackpool confirmed on their official Twitter feed that a subsequent package had been agreed.
