Over three years since he last played for the Netherlands, Ajax midfielder Davy Klaassen is back in the squad.

Davy Klaassen has been recalled to the Netherlands squad for their three upcoming internationals.

MIdfielder Klaassen has not played for his country since October 2017 but has been included for a friendly against Spain before Nations League matches versus Bosnia-Herzegovina and Poland, after impressing on his return to Ajax.

Marseille midfielder Kevin Strootman and Atalanta's Marten de Roon are among the players absent.

Spain visit the Johan Cruyff ArenA next Wednesday and Bosnia-Herzegovina face the Oranje in Amsterdam four days later before De Boer's men take on Poland in Chorzow on November 18.

The Netherlands are third in Group A1 with just one victory from four Nations League matches.

Netherlands squad: 

Marco Bizot (AZ), Jasper Cillessen (Valencia), Tim Krul (Norwich City); Nathan Ake (Manchester City), Daley Blind (Ajax), Stefan de Vrij (Inter), Hans Hateboer (Atalanta), Patrick van Aanholt (Crystal Palace), Owen Wijndal (AZ); Frenkie de Jong (Barcelona), Mohamed Ihattaren (PSV), Davy Klaassen (Ajax), Teun Koopmeiners (AZ), Donny van de Beek (Manchester United), Joel Veltman (Brighton and Hove Albion), Tonny Vilhena (Krasnodar), Georginio Wijnaldum (Liverpool), Ryan Babel (Galatasaray), Steven Berghuis (Feyenoord), Steven Bergwijn (Tottenham), Calvin Stengs (AZ); Memphis Depay (Lyon), Luuk de Jong (Sevilla), Donyell Malen (PSV), Quincy Promes (Ajax).
