On-loan Tottenham midfielder Jake Livermore is hopeful that his form with Hull City can help him back into the England squad.

On-loan Tottenham midfielder Jake Livermore is hopeful that his form with Hull City can help him back into the England squad.

"I'm not looking that far ahead at the minute," the 23 year old told the Hull Daily Mail.

"My main thing is making sure Hull are safe this season and whatever happens on a personal basis, we'll wait and see."

Livermore has seen his close friend Andros Townsend make a huge impact on the international scene and he is hopeful he could follow in his footsteps.

"I've played with Andros and I've been saying the same thing for two or three years now - that he's got enough to set the Premier League alight," he said.

"It's just a matter of getting games and showing people what you can do. You can be the best player in the world but if you're sitting on the bench, coming on for 10 minutes, you can't really show what you can do.

"He's showing that it can be done (getting England call-ups) but maybe players need to go out to get their chance.

"There's a lot of talent in the country and even at my parent club Tottenham, they're bringing through an awful lot of players."
