The Republic of Ireland are chasing Hull City defender Curtis Davies.

The Mirror says Davies is wanted by the Republic of Ireland - leaving the England hopeful facing a big dilemma.

Centre-back Davies, 28, has been in outstanding form for newly-promoted Tigers this season. England scouts have now let the uncapped former Luton trainee knows he is on their radar again.

They ran the rule over Davies' latest solid showing in Hull's narrow 1-0 loss at Tottenham on Sunday.

Now, he could earn a call-up for next month's England friendly with Chile as manager Roy Hodgson prepares to look at his options for the World Cup next summer.
