And the England ace insists he will welcome the extra competition.
"This is our job, this is what we love doing. Every year we know we are going to have competition," he said.
"New players will come in, players that will go and it is just about trying to keep that hunger as a squad. I think in our squad we have got that in abundance.
"Every day that we go in, everyone is keeping each other on their toes. For me I have got four players in my position. I can't go to sleep anytime soon, I have always got to be ready and keep fighting for my position."
