All you need to know about Sean Scannell as Michael O'Neill tries to tempt winger into Northern Ireland switch

Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill has moved to bolster his panel in recent months with the addition of English-born duo Jordan Jones and George Saville. Now there could be another new recruit.

That's after Huddersfield Town midfielder Sean Scannell's agent confirmed the player would "look forward to having a conversation (with Michael O'Neill) when the time is right."

But what exactly do we know about Scannell?

All you need to know about Sean Scannell

Age: 27

Position: Winger

Club: Huddersfield Town

How he qualifies for Northern Ireland: Sean's dad is from County Armagh

International experience: Scannell has played for the Republic of Ireland at Under 17, Under 21 and B international level. He was also called up to senior squads under Martin O'Neill's predecessor Giovanni Trappatoni but never made a senior appearance and so is elligible to switch nations. He could, in theory, play for England (the county of his birth) or Jamaica, due to his Jamaican heritage.

Club career: He is Huddersfield's longest-serving current player, having signed for the club in 2012. He's been a loyal player to both his current and his previous employers. He's only had two clubs and stayed at previous club Crystal Palace for nine years.

What can he do? Well if we look back to the 14/15 season, he was named Huddersfield's Players' Player of the Year. Here are his highlights from that campaign:

Off the pitch: Scannell was recognised by the Professional Footballers' Association as Community Player of the Year at the end of last season. That came for his effort at Huddersfield's breakfast clubs and soccer schools. "He understands what an impact footballers can have on youngsters; he felt the same way when footballers visited his school or area down in Croydon. I have no doubt that he’s made a big impact on many children in our area too," said Huddersfield's Community Head of Football and Sport, Rob Day.
