“I think I’ve come on leaps and bounds, not just as a footballer, but also as a captain. The manager speaks to me a lot and advises me how to act with other players. I think I’ve matured in that way. Footballing wise I think I’ve come on as well, I think I’ve still got a long way to go to where I want to be with this club and international level, hopefully. I’m trying my hardest, I’ll always listen.
“I’d like to take this club as high as I can first and foremost, and then for me individually a call-up would be nice! I understand that the England manager’s got his established players in there and it’s going to take a lot to knock one of them out. I’m still young and I’ll always keep listening, keep learning and hopefully a call-up can happen.”
