​Newcastle right-back Trippier forced to delay England link-up

England right-back Kieran Trippier is yet to link up with the squad for their upcoming UEFA Nations League matches.

The Newcastle United star is not with his teammates at present, due to personal issues.

According to BBC reporter Alex Howell, Trippier is not at St. George’s Park with the other players.

However, he has not pulled out of their games either, and manager Gareth Southgate is understanding of his situation.

He is likely to head to training later on Tuesday or on Wednesday, with the hopes of playing against Italy in Milan on Friday.

England willalso take on Germany at Wembley next week.
