Ama Agbeze will captain England in the Netball Quad Series in January, but shooter Joanne Harten has been ruled out by a knee injury.

The Roses will play New Zealand and Australia in London before travelling to Johannesburg to face South Africa.

Agbeze, who plays her club netball in New Zealand, is one of six overseas-based players in the 14-strong squad.

The series will be England's final competitive action before next year's Commonwealth Games in Australia.

England, ranked third in the world, are hoping to build on a successful end to 2017 which has seen them secure victory in the Fast5 World Series and a 3-0 whitewash of Malawi.

Squad

Ama Agbeze (capt), Jade Clarke, Eboni Beckford-Chambers, Eleanor Cardwell, Beth Cobden, Kadeen Corbin, Sasha Corbin, Stacey Francis, Jodie Gibson, Serena Guthrie, Natalie Haythornthwaite, Helen Housby, Geva Mentor, Chelsea Pitman.
