England have submitted the paperwork to
transfer Carl Jenkinson's international
allegiance from Finland, in the hope he can
play in next month's friendly against Sweden.

The Arsenal defender has a Finnish mother
and played for Finland Under 21s but trained
with Roy Hodgson's squad ahead of the World
Cup qualifier in Poland earlier this month and
told the England boss he was ready to make
the switch.
