Manchester United loanee Charlie Savage will stay with Forest Green Rovers during the international break, despite receiving a call-up from Wales Under-21s.
The midfielder was included in the young Wales squad to face Scotland on Sunday, March 26 in south-east Spain – but he has decided to stay with FGR, and will be available for Rovers’ clash against Sheffield Wednesday next weekend.
“I’ve been given permission to stay with Forest Green Rovers for the upcoming international break,” Savage told Forest Green’s Laurie Martin.
“It is always an honour to be called up for your country, wearing the national team shirt is one of the best and proudest experiences you can have in football.
“I’m really enjoying my time with Forest Green and want to give everything to help us fight for points during the next two weeks and then into the remainder of the season.
“This is something that I have given a lot of consideration to, I want to repay the respect and loyalty to an incredible group of players, coaches and staff who are giving everything every day for this club.
“I want to thank the coaches and everyone at FA Wales for their understanding and I look forward to joining up with them again at the end of the season.”
