Both Reece James and Trevor Chalobah have been withdrawn from the U-21 England national team ahead of upcoming European qualifiers. The move was initially thought of as a precaution as both players have been long-term absentees with injuries.
However, according to the latest reports, Reece has reportedly picked up an ankle injury. Chelsea fans, however, shouldn't worry. According to Nizaar Kinsella, a highly-reliable tier 1 source, James will be back to training next week.
The 19-year-old has been out of action since the spring of 2017 and faced a long recovery after an ankle injury.
The Young Lions head to Maribor for a match against Slovenia on Friday 11 October, before heading back home to resume their qualifying campaign against Austria at home on Tuesday 15 October.
