The Real Madrid youngster could make his debut for the senior side as Didier Deschamps has announced his squad for his first game in charge of les Bleus.New France coach Didier Deschamps has named his 22-man squad for the upcoming international friendly against Uruguay on Aug. 15.
The former Olympique de Marseille boss already stated that he was likely to make a number of changes to the team that went to Euro 2012, and has called up several players that did not travel to Poland and Ukraine this summer.
Rio Mavuba, Christophe Jallet, Raphael Varane, Etienne Capoue, Maxime Gonalons, Bafetimbi Gomis, Jimmy Briand and Dimitri Payet are all fresh faces in les Bleus' team for next week's match.
Adil Rami and Yohan Cabaye miss out due to injury, while Samir Nasri and Jeremy Menez are suspended after being sanctioned by the French Football Federation (FFF) for their behavior at Euro 2012.
Other players who have not been called up include Yann M'Vila, Hatem Ben Arfa and Florent Malouda.
The Rennes midfielder has been in poor form of late, having failed to make an impact at Euro 2012, while his future remains shrouded in doubt.
Elsewhere, the Newcastle ace's reported bust up with French officials in Poland and Ukraine appears to have ruled him out of contention, along with the Chelsea star, who is in now in the twilight of his career.
