Harvey Barnes is considering switching England for Scotland

Harvey Barnes is thinking about changing his international allegiance from England to Scotland, as reported by The Times. Scotland, led by Steve Clarke, is close to qualifying for Euro 2024 after a 3-0 victory against Cyprus.

Barnes has only made one appearance for the England senior team as a substitute in October 2020. Although he has represented England in youth teams, his Scottish grandparents allow him to qualify for Scotland.

At 25 years old, Barnes is seriously contemplating this switch, as reported by The Times. Since joining Newcastle United for £38 million from Leicester City, where he played in the Premier League, he hasn't started a game yet.

However, he's made an impact as a substitute, scoring and providing an assist in the 5-1 win against Aston Villa on the opening weekend of the season.
