John Fleck is set to be called up to the Scotland squad for a third time when Steve Clarke announces his latest team today (BBC).

After some stellar performances for Premier League newcomers Sheffield United, Clarke clearly wants to test him on the international front.

He was supposed to feature against Cyprus and Belgium earlier this year but he was getting married at the same time.

Fleck will join Sheffield United teammate McBurnie in Scotland ranks

There will be one very familiar face for Fleck in the Scotland camp most likely, Blades striker Oli McBurnie.

The striker was selected for Scotland duty last month but it didn’t go to plan. McBurnie was hit with plenty of criticism from fans, which was arguably unwarranted, as he failed to hit the net.

His form hasn’t really picked up since, failing to net since August.

Fleck, however, has been in impressive form at Bramall Lane. After bouncing back from injury, the Scotsman has featured in three tough Premier League fixtures against Southampton, Everton and Liverpool.

Fleck’s inclusion will make Clarke’s midfield look really strong. He has a wealth of Premier League talent in Scott McTominay, John McGinn, Kenny McLean and now Fleck seemingly, whilst also having the likes of SPFL stars Ryan Jack and Callum McGregor.

In his previous call-ups he’s failed to land an appearance, but Fleck will be hoping to finally make his Scotland debut this month.
