West Ham's home grown contingent have been snubbed by Gareth Southgate ahead of England's forthcoming fixtures with Holland and Italy.

The only Hammer to be selected in the former Aston Villa defender's latest international squad is Joe Hart, currently on loan from Manchester City.

And that means a snub for the likes of Aaron Cresswell and Michail Antonio, who have appeared under Southgate in recent England line-ups.

As a result, there are fewer Hammers in the squad than the likes of Burnley and Leicester, with Southgate calling up the Clarets' Nick Pope and James Tarkowski for the first time.

A total number of 14 Premier League clubs are represented in the latest squad, which is due to face the Dutch in Amsterdam on 23 March and Italy at Wembley on 27 March, are as follows:

Liverpool: 4 (Joe Gomez, Jordan Henderson, Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain)
Tottenham Hotspur: 4 (Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Danny Rose, Kieran Trippier)
Manchester City: 3 (Raheem Sterling, John Stones, Kyle Walker)
Manchester Utd: 3 (Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford, Ashley Young)
Arsenal: 2 (Danny Welbeck, Jack Wilshere)
Burnley: 2 (Nick Pope, James Tarkowski)
Leicester City: 2 (Harry Maguire, Jamie Vardy)
Bournemouth: 1 (Lewis Cook)
Everton: 1 (Jordan Pickford)
Southampton: 1 (Ryan Bertrand)
Stoke City: 1 (Jack Butland)
Swansea City: 1 (Alfie Mawson)
West Bromwich Albion: 1 (Jake Livermore)
West Ham United: 1 (Joe Hart)
