Jesse Lingard was hugely impressive throughout the season half of the Premier League season while on loan at West Ham, but has reportedly failed to make the cut for the final England squad

Manchester United playmaker Jesse Lingard has missed out on a place in Gareth Southgate's England squad for this summer's Euros, according to reports.

Lingard was hugely impressive throughout the season half of the Premier League season with nine goals and five assists while on loan at West Ham.

This saw the 28-year-old force his way back into Southgate's squad for March's World Cup qualifiers, ending a near-two-year hiatus from Three Lions contention.

Lingard was also named in the preliminary squad for the Euros, but is set to miss out at Southgate cuts his selections from 33 players to 26 on Tuesday, according to The Athletic.

Irons boss David Moyes appeared to suggest Lingard may be tired during the Premier League run-in, saying: "Jesse won't get any favoured treatment, not from a Scotsman going into the Euros this year.

"He won't get favoured treatment. Jesse is a really fit boy. He wants to play. I push all my players hard. I push them hard to play better. I am pleased with him. He was a bit quieter at St James."

England face Croatia in their first group-stage game next Sunday before further clashes at Wembley stadium against with Scotland and the Czech Republic.

Lingard's reported omission from the squad comes as Manchester United Mason Greenwood withdraws from contention due to an injury.

United announced that playing in the competition would not be "beneficial" for an ongoing injury problem the 19-year-old is suffering with.

Greenwood played 100 minutes of United's Europa League final defeat to Villarreal last week but the Red Devils are now keen for him to have a period of rest.

"Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood has withdrawn from the provisional England Euro 2020 squad, in order to recover fully from an underlying injury that also kept him out of the Under-21 European Championship in March," a club statement read.

"Mason's club appearances were managed carefully to maintain his availability through the intensive 2020/21 Premier League and Europa League schedules.

"But a further spell of tournament football would not be beneficial and Mason will remain at Manchester United to recuperate and prepare for pre-season training."

Greenwood has just one senior England cap having made his debut in a Nations League win in Iceland last September.

After the game, both he and fellow debutant Phil Foden were sent home early after it emerged they had breached Covid-19 protocols.

He returned to Southgate's squad having hit eight goals in his last 14 appearances for United at the end of the season but will now miss out on the European Championship.
