Man City defender John Stones in line for England recall

Manchester City defender John Stones is in line for an England recall.

Stones, 26, has not played for England in more than a year and has fallen down the pecking order in Gareth Southgate's plans.

But Stones is enjoying an impressive run of games for City with England boss Southgate now closely monitoring his performances ahead of a potential recall, says the Mirror.

Central defence is a particular concern for England ahead of the World Cup qualifiers triple header in March as they face San Marino, Albania and Poland.

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez is set to miss out because of a knee injury but Southgate is still looking for a first choice back three with Harry Maguire the only one seemingly an automatic pick.
