He said last week: “Now I’m in the Premier League, I think that’s got to be my aim.
“I want to play at the top level of English football and playing for England is the pinnacle of that.
“So if I can keep playing well and putting good performances in and helping Burnley get results, I don’t see why I can’t get in there.
“Competition is tough, but if I keep doing well, then I don’t see why not.

“In the next few years, I think there’s space for a few centre-halves to break into there and stamp their authority on the team.”
