Southampton midfielder Redmond: Family will have say on Jamaica commitment

Southampton midfielder Nathan Redmond admits he'll speak with his family about committing to Jamaica.

He previously came up through the youth ranks for England, including playing 38 times for the under-21s, scoring 10 goals. Only James Milner and Nathaniel Chalobah have played more games for that age group.

But as his only appearance for the senior side came in a non-competitive fixture, Redmond would be eligible to switch allegiances to Jamaica.

Discussing the stories linking him with a switch to the Reggae Boyz, Redmond told the Daily Echo: "I've not been contacted. I've heard some stories and seen a lot of stuff in the media, but no-one from the international set-up in Jamaica has contacted me.

"So I'm seeing it exactly the same way as everybody else is."

Asked if playing for Jamaica is something he would be open to, Redmond added: "I've not really spoken to my family about some of that stuff as of yet.

"Obviously it's been difficult to see people during lockdown. So I've not really spoken to the family about that.

"That's a decision I guess for all of them to make with me, because I'm quite close with my family and whatever I do football-wise impacts them and our lives."
