The 20-year-old will link up with Wales for the second time when they face France and Panama in friendlies. Coleman's men take on France in Paris next Friday before facing Panama in Cardiff four days later.

Brooks was an unused substitute in both Wales' World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and Republic of Ireland last month. He qualifies for Wales through his mother, who was born in Llangollen, but represented England in the summer's Toulon Tournament and was named player of the competition as England returned with the trophy.

“I’m delighted with the opportunity to play for Wales,” Brooks told United’s official website after receiving his first call-up.

“I’ve spoken to Robert Page and I’m looking forward to joining up with the squad.

“It is a boost to know my progress in being monitored at international level and it will be an honour to play for Wales; it will be a proud moment. My mother is Welsh, she’s from Llangollen and I’m sure all the family will come out to support me.”
