The Sun has been zipping around like a squealing piggy, excitably telling us all that former West Ham villan Nigel Reo-Coker wants to be considered for what is probably the most proliferated position in the England side – midfield. He has captained the England U-21 side and is looking to be considered for a promotion when Fabio Capello takes the helm.

Reo-Coker told The Sun:

“My Christmas wish would have to be an England call-up. I would love to make my England debut and I would be very happy if I got that opportunity. I still do want to play for my country and I hope I don’t get overlooked and people don’t forget about me.”

Reo-Coker has been alright since his move from the Hammers, but still hasn’t lived up to the promise he showed in his first season in the top flight that had the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United rumoured to be interested. An England call-up is probably still a ways away.

Gabby, on the other hand…
