Barnsley’'s Callum Styles, who has been called up by Hungary for their friendlies later this month.

“I’m really excited to test myself against some of the best players in the world and looking forward to linking up with my teammates and showing what I can do.”

Styles has been with Barnsley since joining from Bury in 2018.

Barnsley are on action on Tuesday night as they welcome Bristol City to Oakwell, hoping to build on a weekend draw with high-flying Fuham.

Third-bottom Tykes remain four points off safety with Reading, who sit above them just outside the relegation zone, taking on Bournemouth.
