Chelsea star Mason Mount ruled OUT of England squad just 24 hours after being called up | The Sun
GRAHAM POTTER has confirmed that Mason Mount will not be part of the England squad less than 24 hours after being called up for the games against Italy and Ukraine.
Speaking ahead of Chelsea's game against Everton tomorrow Potter confirmed the midfielder wasn't fit.
He said: "Mason has been struggling a little bit with his pubic bone. He wasn’t 100 per cent the last game, he’s still not quite there. So he’ll miss the England camp as well."
Mount has made 23 appearances for Chelsea this season in the Premier League scoring three goals and providing two assists.
The 24 year old made cameos from the bench in the 1-1 draw at West Ham and the 2-0 defeat at Tottenham.
Mount has missed Chelsea's most recent games against Leeds, Borussia Dortmund and Leicester through injury.
