Adam Wharton is set to be named in England's provisional squad for the upcoming European Championships this afternoon.

The Blackburn Rovers Academy graduate only moved to Crystal Palace in the January transfer window, in what was a club-record sale.

The 20-year-old has instantly become an integral player for the Premier League side, adapting seamlessly to top-flight football. He has started every single match for Oliver Glanser's side since making his debut at Brighton.

His performances have captured the attention of the national media, who have been lobbying for him to gate crash the party. It seemed as though a first senior call-up would just be out of reach, though, ahead of the Euros in Germany.

However, it's understood that Wharton has been included in Gareth Southgate's extended 33-man England squad. The Three Lions boss will formally reveal those included at 2pm on Tuesday afternoon.

That squad will then be whittled down to 26 players by June 7, a week before the tournament begins on June 14.

Wharton will join up with the squad at St George's Park for the training camp, with England set to play two friendlies before they travel to Germany.

The Three Lions face Bosnia and Herzegovina on June 3 and Iceland on June 7. That gives Wharton a couple of opportunities to impress as well as in training.

Blackburn Rovers would only be due any money from Crystal Palace if Wharton makes a competitive appearance for England. That means he would have to feature at the Euros for any add-ons to be triggered.

That is standard procedure across all transfers. Rovers did not have to pay Peterborough United when Sam Szmodics made his Republic of Ireland debut for the same reason.

Southgate has seemingly put his faith in the younger generation with this extended squad. Former Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been omitted from the squad with Wharton's Palace team-mates Ebere Eze, Dean Henderson and Marc Guehi all included.
