Aaron Wan-Bissaka Set To Switch His Nationality If He Continues To Be Overlooked By England
Wan-Bissaka rose to prominence at Crystal Palace before signing for Manchester United where he has established himself as one of the best right-backs in the country.
But Southgate has yet to hand the 23-year-old his full international debut.
The Man United defender received his first and only England call-up back in August 2019, but had to withdraw due to an injury.
He's behind the likes of Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold, Chelsea's Reece James and Manchester City's Kyle Walker in the England right-back pecking order.
The Three Lions have a wealth of options at right-back with Atletico Madrid's Kieran Trippier another possibility.

And reports claim Wan-Bissaka will snub England should he miss out on selection for their World Cup qualifying triple-header in March.
The Athletic say the player will opt for DR Congo having represented them at under-20 level. He has also previously hinted at the switch on social media.
David Ornstein writes: "If he continues to be overlooked by Southgate, who has a wealth of options in Wan-Bissaka's favoured right-back position, sources indicate it is inevitable the 23-year-old will opt for Congo."
Wan-Bissaka was born in England but is of Congolese descent.
He played one game for DR Congo under-20s in 2015, then represented England at the same level and has also played for the under-21s.
Wan-Bissaka's England fate rests on Southgate's upcoming squad with games against San Marino, Albania and Poland on deck from March 25 to March 31.
