Although he has yet to feature for the senior team, the Stoke defender admits he is starting to feel comfortable in the England set-up and is now looking to become a permanent feature at international level.
He told FATV: "It's always good to come away with the national team and now I've been a few times I'm starting to feel at home.
"If you're playing well, you get noticed. At Stoke last year, we played in Europe and that got us a few headlines.
"On a personal note, if I'm doing okay and being consistent, then I always felt that I had enough to hopefully break into the England squad and luckily enough I have done, so I want to stay in it.
"There's a lot of experienced players ahead of me and it's up to me to perform well in training. Hopefully I can play well when I get a chance."
