Michael Keane believes Wayne Rooney is enjoying a new lease of life at Everton and deserves a recall to the England squad.
England's record goalscorer netted his 200th Premier League goal - becoming only the second player to reach that landmark - in Everton's 1-1 draw at Manchester City on Monday.
The goal was also Rooney's second in two league appearances since rejoining his boyhood club from Manchester United and his new team-mate Keane is impressed by his work-rate.
The defender said: "You see it more so than ever. He wants to do really well for this club. He wants to help us win something. Until that happens he won't be resting.
"He has been fantastic since day one. He is a leader in the dressing room, he has worked really hard on his fitness and it is showing in the games.
Keane hopes to see him return as Southgate prepares to name his squad for upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovakia on Thursday - both live on ITV.
The 24-year-old said: "Personally I think he deserves it the way he has been playing but that is up to the manager. There are a lot of good strikers who have been scoring goals so it is his decision."
