​Burnley keeper Heaton called up to England squad

Uncapped Championship Burnley keeper Tom Heaton has been called up to replace injured Joe Hart in the England squad for games against Germany and the Netherlands.

The 29 year old will join the squad for the friendlies against Germany in Berlin on Saturday and the Dutch at Wembley on 29 March.

"Tom has been with us on several occasions and I am welcoming him back into the fold," said Hodgson.

"Obviously it's very disappointing for Joe and Raheem (Sterling) to suffer injuries which will rule them out of our games against Germany and Holland.

"They are important players in our squad and I wish them a speedy recovery."
