Scotland caretaker manager Malky Mackay is understood to be ready to persuade Birmingham City striker Che Adams to represent the nation instead of England according to the Daily Record.

The 21-year-old frontman was born in Leicester and has represented England at Under-20 level. Adams’ father was born in Antigua while his grandparents originate from Scotland.

Adams rejected the opportunity to represent Antigua and Barbuda on the international stage earlier in his career while the player has not been selected for England at Under-21 level. It has now been reported that Scotland caretaker boss Mackay is ready to offer the youngster the chance to play for The Tartan Army at senior level.

The striker has netted 11 goals in 52 appearances for Birmingham City since joining the club in a reported £2 million deal from Sheffield United in August 2016. Adams has attracted transfer interest from both Derby County and Fulham in recent months and while the player is impressing scouts with his performances for his club, an England call-up seems some way away.

Adams may never get the opportunity to play for England at senior level and switching his allegiance to Scotland would surely be the player’s best chance of experiencing regular international football throughout his career.
