Everton midfielder Gareth Barry says he'd welcome an England recall.

Barry has been in such impressive form this season that he still hasn't given up hopes of being selected for England manager Roy Hodgson's World Cup squad.

"If things occur and he needs another player I'm definitely still here," said Barry earlier in January.

"It won't be a case of joining up and being fresh and nervous, I would be able to settle straight back in and I'm sure the manager knows that.

"But we will see. This is the time of year you generally start looking at booking your holidays. I'm not going lie - I will start looking if I don't hear anything soon."
