Harrison Reed has been training with Roy Hodgson's men today.

Southampton have produced some of the best young talents in England in recent years, and have earned a reputation for such as a result. The likes of Theo Walcott, Gareth Bale and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all came through the system at Southampton, and this summer saw Luke Shaw, Callum Chambers and Adam Lallana all leave the club on big money deals.

But the conveyor belt does not step there. Hopes are high for the next generation including Lloyd Isgrove, Sam Gallagher and James Ward-Prowse.

Others however are perhaps more excited by the prospect that is Harrison Reed, and with good reason. The stylish central-midfielder is just 19-years-old and is expected to make his way into the Southampton first-team this campaign.

And today he was called in to do the national team a favour. He joined in with senior training for England at St Georges Park today, where he is currently on duty with the England under-20 squad.

He, along with Barnsley's Paul Digby and Exeter goalkeeper Christy Pym, helped to fill out the numbers for the session, despite having a game against Romania this evening.

He certainly looked the part in action, with the likes of Fabian Delph, Wayne Rooney and Raheem Sterling also visible.

A young Paul Scholes anyone? Southampton and England fans will hope that is the case.
