Man Utd star Aaron Wan-Bissaka set to snub England in favour of DR Congo international call-up in latest Southgate blow

MANCHESTER UNITED defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka is set to snub England as he considers representing the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The 23-year-old right-back has not yet been capped by Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate due to the wealth of options he has in the position.

And the fact that he is continually being overlooked is reportedly making him re-think his England future, according to The Athletic.

If Wan-Bissaka is not selected in Southgate's side's upcoming matches at the end of March, it is thought he will decide to represent Congo.

The former Crystal Palace man played for both England and Congo at youth level, but is yet to play senior international football.

He was picked by Southgate for England's Euro 2020 qualifiers against Kosovo and Bulgaria in August, but pulled out of the squad due to a back injury.

Reports of Wan-Bissaka potentially snubbing England come just one week after 18-year-old Bayern Munich midfielder Jamal Musiala opted to represent Germany despite featuring for the Three Lions throughout his youth career.

The winger, 17, was born in Stuttgart but spent much of his childhood in England, playing for Chelsea's academy.


Most recently, he turned out for England Under-21s and scored in November's 5-0 rout of Albania.

However, an elevation to the senior Germany side is on the cards ahead of next month's internationals and he has now agreed to represent the 2014 World Cup winners.

England's latest squad for their games against San Marino, Albania and Poland will be announced on March 18.

The trio of matches will act as a final chance for Southgate to look at players he may want to include in his Euro 2020 side before he announces the 23-man squad at the beginning of June.
