The Burnley defender's fine form saw him earn his first England cap in March, and he now dreams of becoming a part of a 23-player squad that will head to Russian Federation.

Southgate has also informed Joe Hart that he will not be included in his squad, suggesting that Jack Butland, Jordan Pickford and Nick Pope will be on the plane over the experienced Manchester City stopper.

Joe Hart has reportedly been told he won't be part of England's 23 man World Cup squad.

Reports have claimed Nick Pope will be part of the England squad for the World Cup.

The 31-year-old knew the writing was on the wall for his starting spot after Jordan Pickford was handed the gloves for the friendly win away to Holland in March.

Southgate has since informed one of his experienced player that he won't be on the plane to Russian Federation.

The Manchester City keeper, who spent last season on loan at West Ham, was informed on Monday night that he would not be in the 23-man party for Russian Federation.

Jordan Pickford and Jack Butland are nearly guaranteed to be included in the squad with the ex-Middlesbrough captain unsure of who to opt for between Joe Hart and Nick Pope.

He said: 'I spoke to him three weeks ago before he was in West Ham's team and told him he would be in the squad on the basis of what he's done for us. He's played that role really well.

And Hart has paid the price for a hard season.

The news bodes well for Burnley's uncapped keeper Nick Pope who now looks to be in prime position to be named in the squad which heads for Russian Federation on Tuesday, June 12.
