LOAN star Nathaniel Clyne is hopeful a run of games with Cherries could put him back in the mix for the England squad.

The 27-year-old has not featured for the Three Lions since appearing in a 2-2 draw with Spain at Wembley in November 2016.

That appearance is his only cap to date under boss Gareth Southgate, with Clyne’s other 13 appearances coming under Roy Hodgson.

The London-born star suffered a nagging back injury in July 2017 which required surgery.

Since his recovery, Clyne has been left kicking his heels on the bench at Anfield behind fellow countryman Trent Alexander-Arnold.

But with a run of games now looking likely for Eddie Howe’s men, Clyne believes he still has a point to prove at international level.

Asked whether it was still one of his ambitions to be in the England mix, he told the Daily Echo: “Yeah. Everyone would love to play for their country so, if I’m playing well for Bournemouth, hopefully I get the opportunity. I would be very happy for it.

“I think I’m good enough to play at international level. Hopefully, if I do well for Bournemouth, I will get another opportunity.”

Clyne made his England debut as a 23-year old against Slovenia in November 2014. He has started 12 times and made two substitute appearances.
