England Euros Squad Odds: Aston Villa's Ezri Konsa 11/4 after latest call-up

Aston Villa's Ezri Konsa is given odds of 11/4 to be picked for England's Euro 2024 squad this summer, with the 26-year-old defender having enjoyed a terrific campaign for Unai Emery's Champions League-chasing side.

Ex-Brentford man Konsa has started all but three of Villa's 28 league matches so far in this campaign, with the Villans sat in fourth place in the Premier League table at present under the guidance of tactful Basque coach Emery.

Deployed both in his natural position at centre-back and at right-back at Villa Park in this campaign, the as of yet uncapped Konsa is a dependable and adaptable defender who could provide valuable versatility within England boss Gareth Southgate's final squad for this summer's Euros in Germany.

Konsa has developed into a key member of an Aston Villa side which continues to go from strength to strength under the auspices of ex-Arsenal and PSG boss Emery, with the Englishman a consistent performer in the Villans' backline.

With Emery often favouring a tactical setup in which one full-back is given license to fly forward at will whilst his opposite number remains more withdrawn to form a back three, Konsa has spent a lot of time on the right of Villa's defence this season with either Alex Moreno or Lucas Digne at left-back.

A well-rounded defender, Konsa is physically strong with impressive mobility, and the Charlton Athletic academy graduate is also extremely accomplished on the deck as part of a Villa side which is drilled to play out from the back where possible under Emery.

Handed his first senior call-up for England's Euros Qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia in November, Konsa will be champing at the bit to make his international debut in the upcoming friendlies against Brazil and Belgium this month.
