'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Midfielder speaks of England ambition

Reading midfielder Danny Guthrie has reiterated his ambition to make it onto the international stage and represent England.

The 25-year old has had a very good start to his Reading career, showing some superb midfield qualities for Brian McDermott's side. Danny already has a goal at Stamford Bridge to his name, but wants to impress to the extent that he will be get international recognition. With the likes of Jake Livermore and Tom Cleverley getting call-ups, the former Newcastle man feels like he has a chance to make the squad.

Speaking to the Official Reading FC website, Guthrie said: 'I`m a really ambitious person so I`d love to represent my country, it`s one of the reasons why I did move on. I feel if I`m playing well and regularly I can. You`ve got your top players - the Gerrards, Lampards and Wilshires - then after that I think there`s a chance for a new group of midfielders to come through.'

Guthrie admitted he spoke to several sides over the summer, but felt that a move to the Madejski Stadium was the best for his international future. The Shrewsbury-born midfield has also praised his central midfield partner Mikele Leigertwood, saying the former QPR man allows him to play a more advanced role in the side.

'I spoke to a few clubs over the summer but once I`d met the manager, and heard his plans - this is where I wanted to be. The manager has seen something in me and wants me to get forward into the opposition`s final third to create a goal or create a chance. Playing with someone like Ledge who is a very good, disciplined player allows me to do that.'
