Cape Town - Everton manager Roberto Martinez says no decision has been made regarding Ross Barkley's involvement in the European Under-21 championships in June.
Barkley, 21, is still eligible for England's U21's, but his call-up for the senior side that travelled to Brazil for the World Cup last year means his Young Lions career remains uncertain.
Having been a key player throughout their qualifying campaign, where Gareth Southgate's side won nine of their 10 matches, should Barkley not be chosen it would be a big blow for the side's chances in the Czech Republic.
Martinez, though, says the decision is yet to be made regarding the youngster's availability for the tournament and insists his main concern is Barkley's development.
"We are not aware about what the final decision is on Ross Barkley," the Spaniard is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
"We are working closely with the FA, the England team, and the England set-up. At the moment, Ross is developing extremely well.
"I think, in the last few games, he has been enjoying his football, which is important. All we want is our young players to develop and to enjoy their football. That is the only thing that matters."
