Nathaniel Clyne is hoping that his loan switch to Bournemouth will lead to an England recall.
The right-back won the last of his 14 international caps in November 2016 and in his absence, which was largely caused by a serious back injury, he has seen Kyle Walker, Kieran Trippier and Trent Alexander-Arnold emerge as options for Gareth Southgate
Any international return in the short-term will depend on his success at Bournemouth following his move from Liverpool after making only one Premier League
start under Jurgen Klopp
in the current campaign.
But in reference to the names who have overtaken him in the international pecking order, Clyne said: 'It seems a bit overcrowded there. You just have to play as well as you can when you get the chance to play.
'There are always eyes watching when you play and you never know with injuries, or players' form taking a dip, there's always an opportunity to get back in there.
'I'm just keen on playing well for Bournemouth and seeing what happens from there.'
Clyne is expected to make his first league start under Eddie Howe at Everton on Sunday.
On the possibility of a hostile response from fans of Liverpool's Merseyside rivals, Clyne said: 'I'm really not sure what kind of reception I'll get. But I think I'm experienced enough to deal with whatever reception they give me.
'I'm just looking forward to getting out there and playing my game. I will just concentrate on the game rather than focusing on what the fans are doing.
'You just try to block it out. They chant but it doesn't really affect the game. You just focus on your job and role.'
Dominic Solanke, who has arrived from Liverpool for £19m, will be unavailable as he continues his rehabilitation from a hamstring injury.
