New Liverpool signing Tiago Ilori has revealed he would consider playing for England.
Despite winning a cap for Portugal being the centre-half's main objective, Ilori insisted he would close no door on the chance of international football.
Ilori was born in London and would therefore qualify for England, with his future still up in the air due to him not winning a senior Portugla cap so far.
On the cards? Tiago Illori would be open to playing for England after representing Portgual at youth levels
He told the Liverpool Echo: 'I think I would like to stay loyal to Portugal as I've played in every age group for them.
'But I would never close any doors and there is no decision to make yet. If I have the choice then it is not a bad choice to have.
'I lived in a few places around Kentish Town. I was eight when we moved to Portugal. My mum is Portuguese. I didn't play in any football league when I was in London but just played with my friends.
Writing's on the wall: Ilori is a deadline day signing at Anfield after moving from Sporting Lisbon for 7million
'My English family are originally from Manchester and they all moved to London. My dad was born in London as well.'
Ilori moved to Brendan Rodgers' side from Sporting Lisbon in a deadline-day move last week.
He has a total of 27 caps for Portugal at U18, U19 and U20 levels, but under FIFA rules could still turn out for England until he earns a senior cap.
