Ismaila Sarr has been called up to represent Senegal next month, despite missing Watford's last three matches with a knee injury.

The winger is expected to leave this summer, with Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Everton all registering varying degrees of interest already.

He was ruled out of matches against Everton, Leicester and Chelsea with a knee problem, after the Hornets' relegation was confirmed away at Palace on May 7.

It appears he is now back and available once again, with Senegal selecting him as part of their squad to face Benin on June 4 and Rwanda on June 7 in African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Sarr is not the only injured player to have received an international call up, with Emmanuel Dennis selected to represent Nigeria, alongside fellow Hornet William Troost-Ekong.

Dennis also missed the last three matches of the season with a knee problem, but is now available to represent his country for their friendly matches against Mexico and Ecuador on May 29 and June 3 ahead of AFCON qualifiers against Sierra Leone and Mauritius on June 9 and 13.

Like Sarr, Dennis is expected to depart this summer, with West Ham and Villarreal among clubs to have already spoken to his representatives.

Also involved in AFCON action will be left back Hassane Kamara, who has been called up by the Ivory Coast national team for matches against Zambia on June 3 and Lesotho on June 9.

Adam Masina has also been called up to represent Morocco, while DR Congo have called-up midfielder Edo Kayembe.

Joshua King has been selected for Nations League matches for Norway, who will come up against Serbia, Sweden and Slovenia before a reverse match against Sweden.

Meanwhile, in South America, Francisco Sierralta has been called up by Chile for a friendly with South Korea on June 6 and a Kirin Cup match against Tunisia on June 10, while Cucho Hernandez has been called up by Colombia for a friendly with Saudi Arabia.

Elsewhere, there was positive news for youth player Tiago Cukur, who has been called up by Turkey's senior side for Nations League matches against Faroe Islands, Lithuania and Luxembourg.

The striker told the club website: "The first-team manager called me a couple of weeks ago and told me I would most likely be in the squad, so I knew then but had to wait until it was confirmed and I saw my name on the list,” Cukur explained.

“Me and my family are over the moon. It has been a rollercoaster of a year for me, obviously going out on loan and it not going very well, then coming back and playing in the Under-23s and then making my way into the first-team squad at the end of the season and then topping it off with the call-up for the senior squad for the national team, so obviously it's great news for me and my family.

“I'm going on Friday but it feels like I have to wait for another three weeks! The days are going really slow. I'm really excited and can't wait to start.”

Finally, Dapo Mebude has been called up by Scotland's Under-21 side for games against Belgium and Denmark.
