Shelvey could represent Scotland

2 September 2012 11:39

Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey is set for talks with the Scottish Football Association after discovering he could represent Scotland.

The 20-year-old previously captained the England under-19 side, as well as making four appearances for the under-21 team.

However, as Shelvey has not played for the England side at senior level, he is still available to play for Scotland should he choose to put himself up for selection after discovering his grandmother is from Edinburg.

"At the moment, I am concentrating on my club career, but if the time comes that I am not playing for England, then it (representing Scotland) is something I might not turn down," Shelvey said.

"I am still young, so I don't have to make a decision yet."

Shelvey said new Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers planned to loan him out before he made an impression during pre-season.

"When Brendan Rodgers first came, he said to me that I would be one of the ones he'd look to go out on loan. I took that in deep and felt I had to show this gaffer I want to stay here," he said.

"I thought I did that in pre-season and it's paid off for me. When we got back from the tour in America, he said to me he wanted me to be a big part of his plans.

"It gives you more confidence when you hear your gaffer talking like that. I've been patient and plugged away, and now I feel I am getting the benefits."
