Hearts England U21 winger Driver won't rule out Scotland future

Hearts' England U21 winger Andy Driver won't rule out pledging his international future to Scotland.

The Oldham-born 21-year-old has lived north of the border since the age of 11. He has been cited by SFA chief executive Gordon Smith as one of the possible beneficiaries of a rule change he has proposed to FIFA that would allow players with five years' schooling in a country to switch allegiances.

Driver said: "I'd consider it because I want to play international football. It's a massive divide to cross, going from England to Scotland is a huge thing because of the rivalry. It would be a very hard decision and, if the time came, I'd have to think about it."
