Harry Kane is pondering his international future after Republic of Ireland manager, Martin O'Neill enquired about his availability.
The Tottenham Hotspur centre forward is a current regular for England U21s, scoring five goals in seven games for the young Lions.
He has represented England from U17 level and over the course of the past two seasons has started to work his way into Spurs' first team.
The 21-year-old is eligible to play for the Irish through his father, Pat, and it may be something the young man may consider doing, due to the number of England strikers currently ahead of him in the full England squad pecking order.
O'Neill has contacted both the player and his parents regarding the switch.
Kane has scored three goals for the North London club so far this season and despite not making his full international bow, this approach from the Irish could lead to England manager Roy Hodgson fast-tracking the forward to the full-side for the upcoming Euro 2016 qualifier at home to European minnows, San Marino and away at Estonia.
London-born Kane, was bought into the Spurs first team last season by Andre Villas-Boas and again by Tim Sherwood, and it appears that Mauricio Pochettino has a lot of faith in the youngsters ability.
At 6 ft 2", he's a big lad with great power and ability in the air but he is equally as dominant with the ball at his feet. He scored the winner in Tottenham's 2-1 away win against Cypriot side AEL Limassol in the UEFA Cup playoffs.
His England future all depends on how much game-time he gets at Spurs. He will no doubt want to represent the national side he has played youth football for, but if his full international debut doesn't come anytime soon, he could look to join O'Neill's Irish team.
Particularly as Robbie Keane is ageing now and other striking options include: Kevin Doyle, Shane Long and Anthony Stokes, he may feel he has a lot better chance of making an international career out of playing for The Republic.
If he did make the switch in the next year, it would be interesting to see if he faced his home nation, when England travel to face the Irish in Dublin, next June.
