Newcastle Falcons captain Mark Wilson has been named in England's training squad as they prepare for the upcoming autumn tests.
The 30-year-old has won 19 caps for his country, including during last year's Rugby World Cup final, and will now link up with the squad for this week's mini-camp.
Wilson spent last season on loan with Sale Sharks, but has returned to newly-promoted Newcastle Falcons ahead of the 2020-21 Gallagher Premiership season.
He now forms part of a 28-man squad for the camp at London's Lensbury Club, which will run from Tuesday until Thursday.
England head coach Eddie Jones said: “Our preparation to build the team for the Italy game starts now.
"We have a three day camp this week and another one next week then we’re into the week of our Quilter Cup match against the Barbarians. We’ll be slowly building up, working on the basics and working on team cohesion.
“We’re excited to be back together in camp representing England. This autumn we want to play for the fans and give them something to smile about.”
An updated squad will be confirmed ahead of England’s next training camp from Thursday 15 to Saturday 17 October.
England have six upcoming fixtures this autumn starting with the uncapped Quilter Cup against the Barbarians (25 October, KO 2pm GMT, live on Sky Sports).
Following a trip to Rome to face Italy (31 Oct, KO 4.45pm GMT, live on ITV) in the final round of the delayed 2020 Guinness Six Nations, England will play four matches as part of the Autumn Nations Cup. Quilter Internationals at Twickenham Stadium against Georgia (14 November, KO 3pm) and Ireland (21 November, KO 3pm), an away match v Wales (28 November, KO 4pm) before returning to Twickenham for a placing match to determine final position in the competition (6 December, KO 2pm). All Autumn Nations Cup games will be live on Amazon Prime.
