Swansea City defender Brandon Cooper has been called up to the senior Wales squad for the fixtures against Finland and Estonia.

Cooper was originally named in the Wales Under-21 squad, but he has now been added to Rob Page’s senior squad for the September international camp.

Wales face Finland in a friendly in Helsinki on Wednesday, before heading to Russia to face Belarus in a World Cup qualifier on Sunday.

Cooper will not be available for that fixture in Kazan due to visa restrictions related to his late call-up.

Wales then return home to host Estonia in another qualification fixture on Wednesday, September 8.

Cooper’s promotion sees his Swansea colleague Ben Margetson added to the Wales Under-21 squad for their clash with Bulgaria in Sofia.
