Scotland boss Craig Levein is keen for as many players in his squad to play in the English Premier League as possible.
In a time where Scotland have not qualified for a major tournament since the 1998 World Cup, there has been a lack of Scottish players at the highest level.
"It's not my place to say who should go where or who should stay. The more Scotland players who are testing themselves every week at the highest level, then the better it's going to be," he said.
"It's purely selfish. I'm not a club manager now. I'd love to see all our guys playing at the top level in the Premier League but I don't think that's going to happen."
