Everton signee Barry targets England return

Gareth Barry has his sights set on an England re-call now that he has sorted out his club situation.

The 33-year old midfielder has signed permanently for Everton from Manchester City after spending last season on loan with the Toffees and is now looking to force his way back into national team calculations after last representing his country in 2012.

"You watch England's games and still want to be playing, singing the national anthem," said Barry who has worn the Three Lions shirt on more than 50 occasions in the past.

"It's a massive buzz. As a kid, you always dream of playing for England. That's why I am still here; I've not been capped for a couple of years, but I've not retired.

"You sort of hope for that chance to come again. Any player who feels they still have a chance of playing for England and thinks maybe they should have been picked will watch the games and feel exactly the same."
