Roy Hodgson close-up England

HITC Sport understands that Leicester ace is in line for call-up.

Danny Drinkwater, one of the stars of Leicester City's unexpected title challenge, is in line for an England call-up, HITC Sport has been told.

Three Lions chief Roy Hodgson has been regularly checking on the Premier League's top scorer Jamie Vardy and during those trips.he has been impressed by Drinkwater.

The box-to-box midfielder has been with Leicester since 2012 but the 25-year-old has never enjoyed such a good season.

The former Manchester United youth player is now on the brink of a first international call up with England ready to come calling.

A source has told HITC Sport: "Roy likes what he has seen and he is at a good age so he is ready to take a closer look at him."

HITC Sport has also learned that Hodgson and his staff have been impressed by Tottenham full-back Kieran Trippier and he could very well call up to right-backs from the same club.
