Northern Ireland Call For Mitchell

13 May 2017

Clarets' goalkeeper Conor Mitchell has received his first senior international recognition from Northern Ireland.

Mitchell is named by national team boss Michael O'Neill in an 18-man training group ahead of Northern Ireland's summer internationals against New Zealand and Azerbaijan.

The 21-year-old, who recently signed a one-year extension to his contract at Turf Moor, will report for duty on 22 May for the week-long camp in Manchester.

Under-21 international Mitchell is joined in the group by former Burnley team-mates Danny Lafferty and Shay McCartan.

None of the Northern Ireland players currently involved in Premier League action are included, with a full squad for the friendly against the Kiwis and the World Cup qualifier which follows assembling on 29 May.

Mitchell traveled with the Burnley squad for Saturday's Premier League game at Bournemouth and warmed up with the squad ahead of kick-off.
