QPR director Ferdinand tips Spurs target Eze for England call-up

QPR director of football Les Ferdinand believes Eberechi Eze could win a spot in the England squad.

The 21-year-old midfielder has played 34 times this season, attracting both Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur.

And Ferdinand is confident Eze is good enough to play for the Three Lions.

"A lot of the time you need to be in the Premier League to be recognised but he has shown the kind of form and, if he continues to develop in the way he is developing and keeps showing the type of football he has been playing, he is certainly going to put himself in the frame," the former QPR and Tottenham striker told Sky Sports.

"People are going to start talking about him playing for England.

"He came through and we have got a few others at the club too. Bright Osayi-Samuel is doing extremely well, as is Ryan Manning at left-back. He is not English but he is in the Ireland set-up.

"We have got a few young players coming through the system now who we are really excited about.

"They are helping us in our campaign this season to finish as high up the league as we possibly can."
