Newcastle United defender Paul Dummett is back in the Wales squad ahead of their friendly with Holland later this month.

Chris Coleman's Wales have qualified for next summer's Euro 2016 tournament in France and Dummett will be hoping to be included in the squad.

Dummett hasn't featured for his international side since May after he was forced to pull out of their qualifier with Belgium due to hamstring problems.

But he is back fit now and playing under Newcastle boss Steve McClaren.

If selected by Coleman to play against Holland - who have failed to qualify for the Euros - then he can expect to come up against several of his team-mates with Georgini Wijnaldum, Vurnon Anita and Daryl Janmaat all in the Dutch squad.

There was no place for the injured Tim Krul, who is out for the season with a knee injury.

Wales host Holland on Friday, November 13 at Cardiff City's ground.

Meanwhile, Black Cats defender Sebastian Coates has been called up by Uruguay for their upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Uruguay currently top the CONMEBOL standings and La Celeste take on Ecuador on November 12 at the Estadio Olímpico Atahualpa in Quito, with both nations putting their 100 per cent qualifying records on the line.

Coates will then face the only other team to win both of their opening qualifiers, Chile, in Montevideo on 17th November.

The top four teams will qualify automatically with the fifth-placed nation advancing to the inter-confederation play-offs.
