Netherlands and Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek will miss this summer's European Championships due to injury.

Manager Frank de Boer will not be calling up a replacement for the tournament, which starts for the Netherlands on Sunday against Ukraine.

The Dutch will also face Austria and North Macedonia in Group C.

A statement from KNVB read: "Donny van de Beek has to let the European championship pass by. The Manchester United midfielder is struggling with an injury.

"As a result, the 19-time international, who last played minutes in Orange in March during Gibraltar – Netherlands (0-7), is not available in time for the European Championship.

"National coach Frank de Boer does not call for a replacement for Van de Beek."

Van de Beek, who was signed by United from Ajax last summer for an initial fee in the region of €40m, made only four Premier League starts for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in his first season.

Van de Beek was on the bench for the recent 2-2 friendly draw with Scotland but had not been training with the squad.
