West Ham’s Matt Jarvis is hoping for an England recall once he has established himself at Upton Park.

The 26-year-old, a club record £10.75million summer signing from Wolves, made his international debut against Ghana last year but has yet to add to that cap.

Jarvis has so far only made two appearances for Sam Allardyce’s side since his summer move due to a thigh injury, but is fit to face Sunderland this weekend at Upton Park.

“You have to play well for your club and play regularly to be called up for your country and that is exactly what I want to do,” he told West Ham’s official website.

“The squad we have is very strong and everyone is fighting for a place in the starting eleven.

“I am no different and I need to prove myself if I want to be starting week in, week out.

“Unfortunately I picked up a slight thigh injury in training, which has forced me to miss the last couple of weeks, but I am fully recovered now and I am delighted to be back in the squad and back on the pitch.”
