    According to BBC reporter Alex Howell, the Newcastle defender isn’t currently at St George’s Park with the rest of his Three Lions team-mates.

    Boss Gareth Southgate has given him time off for personal reasons.

    Though it has been said that the former Tottenham star is expected to be at England’s headquarters in Burton upon Trent later on Tuesday.

    He remains able for selection in the upcoming clashes against Italy in Milan on Friday, and Germany at Wembley next week.
