Gray sets his sights on England

New Watford forward Andre Gray is hoping he can earn an England call-up following his £18.5million move to Vicarage Road.

The Hornets made Gray their record transfer earlier this week, with Burnley unable to tempt him to stay put.

Gray has only ever represented his country at England C level but the 26-year-old is still dreaming of a call-up to the national team.

He scored 32 goals in 73 games for the Clarets but Gray admits his current form is not worthy of a place in the England squad.

However, the former Brentford man admits he is still dreaming of a place in Gareth Southgate's squad.

He told reporters: "That is an ambition of mine ever since I played for England C. I have got to prove myself here yet and score goals and then go from there.

"Am I good enough? Not at the minute, if I am honest. I feel like I have got the potential as long as I keep improving.

"I would like to keep that [raw talent] in me. That is the lion in me that keeps me going. But I still need to polish up on a few things to get the call-up.”
