Hearts winger Andrew Driver has pledged his allegiance to Scotland.

National team manager Craig Levein revealed the England Under-21 international, who qualifies through his schooling, had told him he was 'dead keen' to play for Scotland.

Levein has also had "very positive" discussions with Barry Ferguson, but the Birmingham midfielder's proposed return to the Scotland fold has not yet been resolved.

Driver played for England during last summer's UEFA Under-21 Championship but subsequently qualified for Scotland under the new rule agreed by the four home nations.

Levein said: "Andy Driver gave me the nod yesterday that he is dead keen.

"I said 'Do you want to go away and think about it?' He said 'No, my mind is made up, I want to play for Scotland'.

"We need to find out he meets the criteria exactly, that it's five years schooling and not four years, 11 months and 26 days."
