Sale Sharks winger Denny Solomona's debut for England is set to be delayed as he is unlikely to feature in the upcoming tour of Argentina due to a foot injury.

The 23-year-old rugby league convert picked the injury during training and will be further assessed but England coach Eddie Jones expressed his doubt over Solomona's participation in the summer tour.

"We believe it will be pretty doubtful he goes on tour," said Jones.

"Unfortunately injuries are a part of rugby and it just creates an opportunity for someone else."

Earlier in March, Solomona qualified to play for England on residency grounds and was part of Samoa rugby league team as well as London Broncos and Castleford Tigers before his stint with Sale Sharks.

Saracens' Richard Wigglesworth has been recalled by Jones in a 29-man squad for the training camp in Bagshot ahead of their clash against Barbarians on Sunday.

"It's an opportunity to have a look at him and that's what the Barbarians game is for," added Jones.

"He's always been a good player, and I think he's been playing a little bit better. With Ben Youngs away it's an opportunity to have a look at him."

England squad to face Barbarians:

Forwards: Josh Beaumont (Sale Sharks), Rob Buchanan(Harlequins), Will Collier (Harlequins), Ben Curry (Sale Sharks), Tom Curry (Sale Sharks), Tom Ellis (Bath Rugby), Charlie Ewels (Bath Rugby), Jamal Ford-Robinson (Bristol), Ellis Genge (Leicester Tigers), Ross Harrison (Sale Sharks), Nick Isiekwe (Saracens), Chris Robshaw (Harlequins), Nick Schonert (Worcester Warriors), Jack Singleton (Worcester Warriors), Will Spencer (Worcester Warriors), Sam Underhill (Bath Rugby), Mark Wilson (Newcastle Falcons)

Backs: Mike Brown (Harlequins), Danny Care (Harlequins), Nathan Earle (Saracens), George Ford (Bath Rugby), Mike Haley (Sale Sharks), Sam James (Sale Sharks), Alex Lozowski (Saracens), Joe Marchant (Harlequins), Jonny May (Gloucester Rugby), Ryan Mills (Worcester Warriors), Richard Wigglesworth (Saracens), Marland Yarde (Harlequins)
