Dean Henderson has been named in England's provisional squad for this summer's European Championships.

The Cumbrian goalkeeper has, as expected, been selected as one of four goalkeepers by Gareth Southgate.

Manchester United star Henderson, from Whitehaven, joins Jordan Pickford, Sam Johnstone and Aaron Ramsdale in the 33-man squad.

Southgate will trim his squad to 26 men next week but former Carlisle academy keeper Henderson, 24, looks certain to make the cut.

It is the latest landmark in the career of the talented Cumbrian - who will be the first player from this county to be in an England squad for a major tournament since fellow keeper Scott Carson was in the 2006 squad for the World Cup.

Henderson, who was on Carlisle's books until the age of 14, is one of two keepers chosen by Southgate who were formerly with the Blues, Pickford having had a loan spell at Brunton Park in 2014.

Pickford is likely to be first-choice for next month's tournament with Henderson his main competitor.

The Cumbrian has one senior cap to date, which he won earlier this season in a friendly against the Republic of Ireland.

The former St Benedict's School boy has represented his country at age group levels including Under-21.

Southgate will confirm his final 26-man squad before the June 1 11pm UEFA deadline.

Elswehere in the squad, the England boss has included Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold, while Everton defender Ben Godfrey and Brighton defender Ben White have been called up for the first time.

Midfielders Jordan Henderson and Kalvin Phillips have been included despite fitness concerns, while teenage stars Mason Greenwood and Jude Bellingham are in the 33-man squad.

The squad will report to Middlesbrough’s Rockliffe Park training ground on Saturday, ahead of next week’s friendlies against Austria and Romania at the Riverside Stadium.

England’s Euro 2020 campaign begins on Sunday, June 13 against Croatia at Wembley, followed by further group stage games against Scotland and the Czech Republic.
