Former captain Michael Vaughan was left out on Monday of England's Ashes training camp squad.

Vaughan has not played for England since resigning as captain following last year's third Test against South Africa at Edgbaston, although he has often stressed how he he wants to play in the upcoming Ashes.

So far this season Vaughan, England's 2005 Ashes-winning captain, has done little for Yorkshire to press his claims for a Test recall, scoring only 159 first-class runs at an average of 19.88 in six matches.

He has also suffered a recurrence of a right knee injury which sidelined him for over a year and forced him out of Yorkshire's recent Championship match against Somerset.

The first Ashes Test is due to start in Cardiff on July 8.

Australia won the last Ashes series against England 5-0 in Australia in 2006-07.

Training squad: Andrew Strauss (captain), James Anderson, Ian Bell, Ravi Bopara, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Paul Collingwood, Alastair Cook, Andrew Flintoff, Graham Onions, Monty Panesar, Kevin Pietersen, Matt Prior, Adil Rashid, Ryan Sidebottom, Graeme Swann.
