The 17-year-old, who qualifies for Wales through his Cardiff-born grandfather, has been selected by U21s manager Paul Bodin for a training camp on March 22 which will lead into a friendly against Republic of Ireland U21s at Wrexham four days later.

Stevens, who was born in Brighton, scored once in 20 games for Worthing last season following his move from Arsenal's Academy in 2019.

The defender departed Woodside Road in July 2020 to join Championship-outfit Brentford, where he has made three appearances.
