Manchester United has pulled Mason Greenwood out of England's European Championships provisional squad due to an underlying injury concern.

England manager Gareth Southgate is set to trim seven names from the 33-man provisional group that he had announced last week in light of several Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United players being involved in the Champions League and Europa League finals.

A statement from United read: "Greenwood has withdrawn from the provisional England Euro 2020 squad, in order to recover fully from an underlying injury that also kept him out of the Under-21 European Championship in March.

"Mason’s club appearances were managed carefully to maintain his availability through the intensive 2020/21 Premier League and Europa League schedules.

"But a further spell of tournament football would not be beneficial and Mason will remain at Manchester United to recuperate and prepare for pre-season training."
