James Maddison and Curtis Jones will not be included in England manager Gareth Southgate’s final squad for Euro 2024.

Tottenham playmaker Maddison and Liverpool midfielder Jones were called up to the provisional 33-man selection.

Liverpool centre-back Jarell Quansah is also expected to be one of the seven players to be cut from the squad when the final 26 for the tournament in Germany is announced on Saturday.

Maddison played in England's friendly against Bosnia-Herzegovina on Monday, coming off the bench in the 3-0 win at St James' Park, while the uncapped Jones and Quansah did not feature.

Jones and Maddison have left the England camp prior to the team's last warm-up friendly against Iceland at Wembley on Friday.

Former Leicester player Maddison has seven senior England caps and was part of Southgate's squad for the 2022 World Cup, although he did not make an appearance in Qatar.

The 27-year-old joined Tottenham in a £40m move from the Foxes last summer but endured an inconsistent season after a strong start was disrupted by injury.

One person not ruled out is Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw, who returned to training on Wednesday after a long injury lay-off.

England start their Euro 2024 campaign with a Group C game against Serbia in Gelsenkirchen on 16 June, before games against Denmark on 20 June and Slovenia on 25 June.
