Dean Henderson looks set to be named in England’s provisional European Championships squad today.

National team boss Gareth Southgate had been due to announce his 26-man squad for the summer tournament this afternoon.

But an expanded squad of more than 30 names will instead be confirmed by Southgate, which will then be trimmed to 26 before the UEFA deadline of June 1.

Cumbrian star Henderson, 24, is widely expected to make the cut as one of the three goalkeepers.

The Manchester United keeper, from Whitehaven, is likely to be understudy to Everton’s Jordan Pickford in Southgate’s selections.

With Nick Pope an injury doubt for the squad, Sam Johnstone could be the third keeper in line.

Pickford and Henderson’s likely selections will mean two of the three glovemen in the Euro squad will be former Carlisle United men.

Henderson, who has one full international cap to date, was with the Blues' academy until the age of 14, while Pickford was on loan at Brunton Park in 2014.

Other selection issues faced by Southgate include whether to include Jordan Henderson after his injury lay-off.

Harry Maguire is another fitness concern while Southgate must also weigh up whether to include Kalvin Phillips after injury.

The expanded squad is likely to give Southgate more time to assess those fitness issues before the 26-man group is finalised.

The England boss will hold a press conference at 2pm after the 1pm squad announcement.
