Dallas has a glute issue but is still expected to be involved on Monday night when Germany visit Belfast.

McCalmont has previously represented Northern Ireland at Under 17, Under 19 and Under 21 level but is yet to earn a senior cap.

The 19-year-old midfielder made his full Leeds United debut in the Carabao Cup last month against Stoke City at Elland Road.
