Wigan boss Bruce: Cattermole can be England star

Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce is convinced he's signed a future England star in Middlesbrough midfielder Lee Cattermole.

He said: "I really think the sky's the limit with Lee. If he dedicates himself to the sport as he clearly has done up until now, and he keeps learning, there's no reason why he can't progress to full international honours."

Cattermole should have more first-team opportunities at Wigan, and plenty of chance to impress England boss Fabio Capello.

He admitted being "sad" about leaving his home club, but said: "I just think the time is right for a new challenge and I see working with Steve Bruce here at Wigan as a fantastic opportunity because this is a team really going places."
