There is probably next to no chance he will play for us if his career continues the way it does. His career would want to go up in smoke like Will Keane before he'd play for us I'd say.

Premier League 2 Player of the Month.

Worth re-visiting the Rory Delap interview someone shared above from 2014:

And with his parents — John from Letterkenny and Maura from Kells — he had a special Christmas, marvelling at John’s capacity to persuade his boys — aged 10, six and four — to declare their allegiance to Ireland.

“They’ll listen to him quicker than they will me,” laughed Delap. “But you hope the importance of being Irish resonates with them. It meant everything to me growing up. We’ve gone back to the same places I went to when I was a child in Donegal and Meath. They loved it.

"Their granddad has drilled it into them that if they’re any good at anything, it’s Ireland they have to represent. When he said it, they took it all in. So that’s one issue done and dusted then.”

We should 100% be knocking his door down. He could be starting for us right now

Yes, and with the talent in front of him he could be waiting a long time to be a regualar England player, we could build a team around this kid, robably one of the best prospects in world football for his position.

We've got plenty of long term forward prospects, what we are lacking in is short term goal scoring options. Delap never had any interest even playing under-16 friendlies for us, now his career has progressed he's not going to suddenly get excited about playing for the worst Ireland team in 40 years.

He's got very close ties to ireland and he's a fantastic talent with star potential. The FAI should definitely be on a charm offensive here.

He either wants to play or he doesn't. Best of luck to him either way. One phone call should sort it.

It's mad, isn't it? He's played for England at U15, U16 and U17 level and hasn't shown any interest in representing us, yet people think it's just a matter of dangling the carrot of playing with Callum O'Dowda and Daryl Horgan in front of him and he'll immediately declare for us at 17 years old and become the salve to all our problems despite playing a sum total of two matches for City.

It's mind-boggling how I could easily list 20 players who've been in a similar situation and there hasn't once been a player who has went with us if they had a choice to make - yet we are doomed to keep repeating these same pointless conversations again and again despite there being no precedent of a player at high profile club either in or on the periphery of England sides going with us.

Yes hotlips... yes... Things are that desperate that all we have is a hope and a prayer that something might change in our favour. 

Things are bad and will most definitely get worse before they get better. Next season we'll have fewer Premier league players than we do now. Egan, Stevens, oshea and Robinson set for relegation

Our best players Coleman, Doherty and Mccarthy falling out of the first teams for various reasons and that is a trend likely to continue 

Its pretty grimm yet some ireland fans will still expect Kenny to wave a magic corner flag and create a winning team or face the sack...

I'd say it would go about as well as the time Northern Ireland asked Wayne Rooney if he'd be interested in playing for them.
