Tottenham fullback Kyle Walker has won a surprise England call-up.

He is currently playing on-loan at Aston Villa.

Walker's elevation was a shock and comes at the end of a period when the 20-year-old has excelled in loan spells with both QPR and Villa, Harry Redknapp having decided there is no short-term use for the Sheffield-born player at his parent club Tottenham.

Walker has appeared for England at Under-19 and Under-21 level, making his debut for the former before he had appeared in a Football League match for his first senior club, Sheffield United.

England squad: Foster, Hart, Stockdale; Baines, Cahill, A Cole, Dawson, Johnson, Lescott, Terry, Walker; Barry, Downing, Gerrard, Lampard, Milner, Parker, Walcott, Wilshere, Young; Agbonlahor, Bent, Crouch, Defoe, Rooney
