Declan Rice has said he will "make a decision soon" as regards his future in international football and admits he wants to have the most successful career he possibly can.
Speaking to Ken Dyer in the Evening Standard, the 19-year-old explained that he and his family had conversations with both England and Ireland but that a decision has not yet been reached.
"With regard to my international future, myself, my Dad and my brother [Connor] have talked with Ireland coach Mick McCarthy and I've also spoken to Gareth Southgate," he said.
"They've both said that whenever I'm ready, it's up to me to make the decision. There was so much going on earlier in the season, but now most of that has been sorted, so I will make a decision soon."

He continued: "As for now I want to play at the top level throughout my career. I want to win trophies, even the Champions League. You have to be ambitious, if not, what's the point?
"I've seen comparisons between myself and Bobby Moore. It's nice to be told there are similarities, but nobody will come close to him - what a player, what a man!
"Just to be mentioned in the same breath as Bobby is something really special for me. I know I still have a lot to learn. If you're not learning, you don't progress."
Rice made three appearances in an Ireland jersey last year, but because each of the games was a friendly, he has not committed to representing Ireland in the future.
Meanwhile, Manchester City are said lining up a move for West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.
According to reports in the UK press, the Premier League champions are looking to sign the Republic of Ireland international. Pep Guardiola views Rice as a long term successor to Fernandinho.
