The UEFA Under-21 European Championship will feature a host of Premier League talent when it kicks in Italy on 16 June. 

Thirty-eight youngsters from 17 of the 2018/19 clubs have been selected for the competition.

For England, all but two of the 23 players called up by Aidy Boothroyd were registered to a Premier League club in 2018/19.

In total, the players selected made 271 appearances in the 2018/19 Premier League. 

Joining their ranks is AFC Bournemouth's summer signing Lloyd Kelly. The only other exception is Ezri Konsa, of Brentford. 

Nine of the other 11 nations also have Premier League players in their squads, including Spain with West Ham United's new signing Pablo Fornals and Wolverhampton Wanderers' Rafa Mir, and France's Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi.

The three group winners advance to the semi-finals along with the best runner-up, as they compete for a place in the final on Sunday 30 June.
