"My ambitions are to be playing regularly next season, especially when the big games come around, and to be pushing for the England squad," he told the Daily Mail.
"I've got to be regularly in the Spurs team before I think about England and I have to keep progressing the way I have since Christmas, when I've only missed three or four games through selection.
"The new manager has us playing a certain way. He wants us to attack regardless of the opposition and, apart from the two centre backs, everyone can express themselves and get forward. We are keeping the ball better as a team and personally I'm attacking better.
"If I can start the new season like that then hopefully I'll play more often than not at Spurs."
