Birmingham City defender, Curtis Davies, has expressed willingness to play for the Sierra Leone national team; Leone Stars.
According to tribalfootball.com, the former Aston Villa stopper admits he wants to play international football and could possibly play for the West Africa Nation.
He told the Daily Mail: “My dad comes from Sierra Leone and I’ve had a couple of invitations to play for them in the national side but it’s not the right time.
“The African calendar means playing in January and it would affect my career. We didn’t qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations but if we had, then it would have meant going away now.
“I’ve never been to Sierra Leone. If I go back I’d like to do something there rather than just travel there.
“I regard myself as English I’ve played for the Under 21s and got into a few of the senior squads when I was at Villa but I have a soft spot for Sierra Leone and maybe in the future I will consider playing for them.
“The African games are usually exciting, high-scoring, high tempo and good to watch so I’ll be tuning in this month.”
