Arsenal goalkeeper Manuel Almunia has again put his hand up for England.

The Spaniard is a year away from becoming a British citizen and, having never represented Spain at any level, the 30-year-old would become eligible to play for England.

"I would never close the door on people who have shown me so much affection," he told Spanish newspaper El Mundo. "If I can lend England a hand once the time comes for me to be eligible - and I want to thank the country for the support it has shown me - I don't see why I shouldn't play for them. I don't rule it out."
