By SFC Media Sun 29 Mar Club

Southampton defender Matt Targett has withdrawn from the England Under-21s squad through injury.

Targett, along with club teammate James Ward-Prowse, was set to face Germany on Monday night at Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium, but will return to the south coast after picking up an injury.

The left-back won his first Under-21 cap on Friday evening, playing the first 45 minutes as Gareth Southgate's side won 1-0 against Czech Republic in Prague.

The 19 year-old will be assessed by the club's medical staff on his return to the Staplewood Campus.
