Bayer Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah has withdrawn from Germany's UEFA European Under-21 Championship squad through injury.

The 21-year-old has suffered a recurrence of a troublesome thigh problem, which restricted him to just six Bundesliga appearances during the second half of the 2016/17 season.

Hannover's Waldemar Anton, having been cut from Stefan Kuntz's final squad a week ago, has been called up in his stead.
