Jamaica worries England with push for Man Utd whiz Greenwood, Arsenal midfielder Maitland-Niles

Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood is attracting international interest from Jamaica, along with Arsenal midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

There are 124 players across the top four divisions in England born in England to Jamaican parents or grandparents, and TVJ Sports claim Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips and Everton's Mason Holgate are also of interest to Gareth Southgate.

The Yorkshire Evening Post reports that Phillips will meet with Southgate on Friday over a possible call-up to England's next squad in September.

Jamaican agent Devon Porter told TVJ Sports: "He was excited about representing Jamaica, even though he understands that Gareth Southgate has been monitoring him for a while now.

"He is passionate about his Jamaican heritage and he's very, very interested in representing Jamaica."
