Midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong is among 12 new players called-up into the England U-21 squad for matches against Azerbaijan and Israel.

The squad also features striker Danny Welbeck who has been in scintillating form for his club Manchester United.

However it is Frimpong that most Ghanaians would be bothered about following his public declaration to play for Ghana.

Technically, both players will still be eligible to play for Ghana even though Welbeck has been capped once at senior level and ironically, against the Black Stars in an international friendly in March.

It is at this point unclear whether the 19-year-old Arsenal player will honour Stuart Pierce's invitation.

England U-21 squad:

Goalkeepers: Ben Amos (Manchester United), Jack Butland (Birmingham City), Declan Rudd (Norwich City).

Defenders: Nathan Baker (Aston Villa), Joe Bennett (Middlesbrough), Matthew Briggs (Fulham), Steven Caulker (Swansea City, loan from Tottenham), Craig Dawson (West Bromwich Albion), John Flanagan(Liverpool), Phil Jones (Manchester United), Martin Kelly (Liverpool), Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur) and Andre Wisdom (Liverpool)

Midfielders: Ross Barkley (Everton), Dan Gosling (Newcastle United), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Emmanuel Frimpong (Arsenal), Henri Lansbury (Arsenal), Josh McEachran (Chelsea), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal), Jack Rodwell (Everton) and Jonjo Shelvey (Liverpool)

Strikers: Nathan Delfouneso (Aston Villa), Marvin Sordell (Watford), Martyn Waghorn (Leicester City), Danny Welbeck (Manchester United) and Connor Wickham (Sunderland).
