I’m English and I’ll always be an Englishman, but if I’m still fit and there’s a chance to play at the highest level, why would I not take it? He said.
If I go over there and end up existence a US citizen, or have a green card, I can help the growth, particularly being someone who has just ended with England. It would be nice to get intricate in that.”
