Southampton youngster Christoph Klarer will travel to Italy with Austria Under-17s later this month.

Klarer, who has made 16 appearances for Craig Fleming’s side this term, has been called up to the national squad for their training camp in Florence.

During the five-day trip Austria will play two friendly matches against Italy in preparation for next month’s Under-17 UEFA Elite round.

"We've had a good group getting international call-ups," explained Fleming.

"Ultimately that's what we want at the club: people that are getting recognised by their countries and good players that can push on and come through the ranks.

"It'll be another good experience for Christoph to go away and experience international football."
