MASON Greenwood will never again be selected for England by Gareth Southgate, The Sun understands — even though the striker has rejected a switch to Jamaica.
The Man United ace, 21, has not given up on his Three Lions dream, despite falling out with the England manager.
He is waiting to hear if United will re-integrate him after charges of attempted rape, assault and controlling and coercive behaviour were dropped last month.
Greenwood qualifies for Jamaica via his mother’s side, and rules state he could be eligible to play for them in September.
Jamaica Football Federation boss Dennis Chung said: “He is only 21 and so has a very bright future ahead of him and I think he will add value to any team he is on.”
However Greenwood is keen to resurrect his England career after making his debut at 18 away to Iceland in 2020.
The next day he and team-mate Phil Foden were sent home after smuggling two women into the team hotel in breach of Covid rules.
Greenwood has not played for his country since.
A source said: “He is clinging to the hope of playing again at the highest level.
“But Southgate places a great deal of importance on not only a player’s talent, but how the squad gels.”
