Aston Villa right-back Matty Cash is reportedly set to be approached by the Polish FA over switching international allegiances.

The 24-year-old, who is eligible to play for Poland through family on his mother's side, is believed to be reluctant to commit as he still has ambitions of representing England.

Incredibly, according to the Daily Mail, the defensive stalwart could make his international debut for the Poles next month ahead of the World Cup qualifiers.

Speaking last year, Cash said accepting a call-up for Poland is something he would consider.

"My mum is actually half Polish and speaks the language fluently," he told Sky Sports.

"There's been contact with my agent about playing for Poland and it's something that I would look at.

"I just have to keep playing well and keep progressing before I make any decision. It's nice to have an option."


Cash, who would prefer to play for Gareth Southgate's England, could hardly play in a more competitive position, with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Kyle Walker, Kieran Trippier and Reece James all regularly featuring in the squad.

There are plenty of other contenders on the fringes, too, such as Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Tariq Lamptey, Kyle Walker-Peters, and James Justin.

If he chose to represent Poland, Cash could take on San Marino and Albania next month when the road to the Qatar World Cup continues.

Ironically enough, Poland are in England’s group - the two playing out a 1-1 draw this month - and are currently third, five points behind the Three Lions and a point behind Albania with four games to play.
