West Ham midfielder Declan Rice has announced he has decided to submit a written request to Fifa for the transfer of his international registration from the Republic of Ireland to England.
The 20-year-old was born in London but qualified for the Republic of Ireland via paternal grandparents and after playing at youth level went on to make three senior appearances, all in friendly matches.
However, after breaking into the West Ham first team and becoming a regular in Manuel Pellegrini's side this season, Rice has chosen to switch his allegiance to England.
Rice said in a lengthy statement posted on his official Twitter account on Wednesday: "This afternoon I telephoned both Mick McCarthy and Gareth Southgate to inform them of my decision to submit a written request to Fifa for the transfer of my international registration from the Republic of Ireland to England.
"This has been an extremely difficult decision and, in all honesty, not one I ever expected to be making at this stage of my career. So much has happened, so quickly, in the past couple of years."
