Jason Lowe would relish representing Great Britain at next year's Olympics but insists he is focusing on helping lift Blackburn Rovers out of the drop zone.

The 20-year-old is following in the footsteps of close friend Phil Jones, who has earned a move to Manchester United and represented England since breaking into the Rovers team two years ago.

"It's definitely a goal to try and achieve but it's a long way away - it's at the back of my mind not at the front," Lowe said of a possible Olympic appearance.

"There is a long season ahead of us and what happens here is most important to me and any international recognition after that is a bonus."

"I have made my under 21 debut and that was a proud moment, and having the armband at the under 20 World Cup was a great honour.

"I just enjoy putting my boots on and playing and I am not too fussed which position I am picked in."
