Sean Dyche believes that goalkeeper Joe Hart has earned a recall into the England squad after an impressive start at Burnley

The latest selection for the Three Lions is set to be announced on Thursday with Hart hoping to be among the names on the list to face Croatia and Spain in the UEFA Nations League.

The former Manchester City keeper was left out of the World Cup team by head coach Gareth Southgate, but has done well at Turf Moor since arriving in the summer.

“Gareth Southgate is someone I respect and he’ll make his own mind up about it,” Dyche told talkSPORT.

“The noise from the World Cup was that he wants to go into a new direction with a younger band of players and develop them, understandably.

“But, I think you equally need experience.

“I’m in a great situation at Burnley with not just Joe coming in, but with Nick Pope and season he had and then going to World Cup and Tom Heaton, who is a fantastic goalie and professional.

“I’ve got a really good group of goalies, without a doubt.”

The Burnley coach added: “Joe has done really, really well. He’s fitted in really nicely. He just wanted to come in and get on with it and enjoy his football.

“The main thing at his age is he wants to be challenged and be in a good environment, and I think he’s got that at Burnley.”

Hart has made 75 appearances for England at international level.
