"Obviously once you play for England you want to keep on playing for England", the 27 year old told the Birmingham Mail.
"I've had a taste of it and I really enjoyed it.
"It would be good to get back there but the first thing on my mind is trying to get into the Aston Villa team. I'll take it one step at a time."
Shorey added: "I think it's important for any club to have an English base and there are some quality English players and there are lots of good young English players here at Villa, so I'm sure I am in the right place to be noticed by Fabio Capello.
"Just coming to a club like this and playing with the players that are here, hopefully that will bring the best out of me."
