Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley wants to play for Great Britain at the London Olympics.

He also claims that other Premier League stars are keen to take part in the London Games.

“It is something that everyone strives for - to experience new things throughout your career - so the Olympics would be different," said Cleverley, 22.

“For a young English player, it is an exciting summer of football with the Euros and Olympics, and I would be proud to represent at either of those.

“Having the chance to have an Olympic gold medal in your trophy cabinet would be unbelievable - a lot of the players are talking about it.

“I always looked up to David Beckham when I was young. To play alongside him would be great.”
