A trio of Derby County Academy players have been selected to represent their respective countries for the upcoming March internationals.

Midfielders Cruz Allen and Niall McAndrew as well as defender Dan Cox will all jet off next week to take part in fixtures abroad.

Allen and McAndrew will take part in the UEFA Under-17 European Championship Elite Round for Wales Under-17s and Republic of Ireland Under-17s respectively.

Cox on the other hand has become a regular in the last year for Wales Under-19s and he will once again represent them in two friendly fixtures against Belgium later this month.

All three players are part of Daniel Maye's Under-18s but their impressive form has seen them feature on numerous occasions for Jake Buxton's Under-21s this campaign.
