Three Lions boss Steve McClaren said Young's inclusion was reward for good performances for the under-21s and also with Aston Villa.
"I think it is good for experience [to bring him in].
"He has done well for the under-21s and he has carried that into the beginning of the season.
"It is an ideal opportunity to bring in one of the under-21s, which I'm keen to do.
"It is good to blood these youngsters."
