Newcastle United winger Harvey Barnes is reportedly considering changing his international allegiance ahead of the European Championship next summer.
Barnes, who recently joined Newcastle from Leicester City, has only one cap for England and has not been included in Gareth Southgate’s squads since.
He missed out on a place in the provisional squad for the World Cup in Qatar last year.
It is now suggested that Barnes is open to representing Scotland, as he is eligible through his grandparents and has not played competitively for England.
Although he previously rejected advances from Scotland, his chances of breaking into the England squad seem slim, leading to his openness to a switch.
His Newcastle United teammate Elliot Anderson has already made the decision to represent Scotland.
Barnes has made four appearances for Newcastle, scoring on his debut, and is pushing for a starting place in their upcoming Premier League match against Brentford.
