NEW Bristol City striker Lee Trundle has revealed he is determined to force his way into the international reckoning with the Republic of Ireland.
And later Trundle admitted, Id like to play at the highest level and that includes internationals.
His grandfather is from Inchicore, a suburb of Dublin, and Trundle has dreamed of playing international football since he was a schoolboy.
Staunton is not overloaded with options up front as he struggles to lead the Republic to qualification for Euro 2008 but Trundle is an interesting prospect.
Although relishing his new challenge, Trundle hopes to maintain his links with Swansea.
