England international Ryan Bertrand has pledged his services to the Grenfell Tower relief effort, by helping to find new homes for survivors.

The 27-year-old Southampton defender has taken to Twitter to explain he wants to help those affected by the fire disaster by doing more than just donating.

Fifty-eight people are missing and presumed dead with Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cund warning that the death toll could rise further.

Southwark-born Bertrand Tweeted: “I went to Grenfell Tower (on Friday). I want to help, not just donate. I can’t think of all the answers but I can do what I feel is needed.

“Starting with rehousing the victims, and making sure they don’t leave the W11 post code. And remain on the emergency housing list.

“Monday I will be around @RugbyPortobello putting this plan into action. From 10:30am until progress has been made.”

Earlier this week, Bertrand won his 14th England cap against France.
