Maguire To Return To England Squad Next Month

England boss Gareth Southgate has announced that Harry Maguire will return to the squad next month.

Southgate removed the 27-year-old defender after he was found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest and repeated attempts of bribery and handed a suspended three-year sentence.

However, his sentence was nullified after Maguire who maintained he was innocence, filed an appeal.

But he will not be involved in England’s upcoming Nations League games against Iceland and Denmark.

When asked if Maguire will return to the squad ahead of fixtures against Wales, Belgium and Denmark in October, Southgate replied “yes and yes. “

“We’ve been in touch right the way through the last two-and-a-half weeks.” He continued.

“It’s been clearly a really difficult period for him and I think the last few days have been very important for him to be able to relax and get away from all the attention – mentally get a rest, because of course he had a short break anyway but then the events that happened in Greece really dominated that.

“I think he needed that switch off and he’ll be able to go back to his club, and absolutely we would be looking to involve him in October.”
