Jude Bellingham has been 'barred' from travelling to the UK for England duty by Borussia Dortmund because of strict coronavirus guidelines.

Bellingham, 17, was set to be named in Gareth Southgate's squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against San Marino, Albania and Poland.

The Three Lions boss picks his squad on Thursday and will be without a host of key players including Jordan Pickford and Jack Grealish, among others.

And he could also be without Bellingham who will now have to quarantine for 14 days upon returning to Germany from England.

Southgate and the FA thought the budding midfielder was exempt from quarantining.

The laws have since been altered, but Southgate is still hopeful the situation could change yet again so the teenager becomes available for selection.

Bellingham is still waiting to discover whether he can join up with the England team ahead of fixtures at the end of the month.

The Guardian claim Dortmund are not prepared to be without the ex-Birmingham City star for the two weeks that follow the internationals as both of their Champions League quarter-final fixtures fall within that period.

The Bundesliga club have already refused to allow Gio Reyna to travel to Northern Ireland for USA's friendly match on March 28.

They would also have stopped Jadon Sancho from travelling but he's injured.

Bellingham made his senior debut for England against the Republic of Ireland last year.

He was left out of England's Euro U21 squad in view to receiving a senior call-up, but those plans remain on ice.
