Winger Aaron Lennon is intent on forcing his way into the reckoning for a place in England’s 2016 European Championship squad after moving to Everton.
The pacey wide man joined the Toffees on loan for the second half of last season before joining them permanently in the Summer transfer window, and is looking to reignite his career at Goodison Park.
The 28-year-old has 21 international caps to his name but saw his career stall over the last two years at Tottenham Hotspur and is determined to get back into the England setup.
“I do want to get back into the England set-up as I’ve been out of it for a while now. I love playing for England and I’ve missed it,” he told Sky Sports.
“There are a lot of England players here so hopefully the manager will be coming to watch a lot and that gives me a better chance to show what I can do if I am playing.
“I just want to get back to playing the way I know I can and get a run of games. You need a run of games to get up to form and that is my aim.
“Spurs have loads of players, a massive squad, and some players go for long periods of time without playing. I think any footballer will tell you when they are not playing it is not enjoyable.
“If you are not playing sometimes it is best to move on. That was the case for me and it was time for me to move,” he concluded.
