Motherwell star Chris Humphrey has revealed he qualifies to play for Scotland.
Humphrey is considering his international options after being sounded out by the country of his birth - Jamaica - about playing for them.
However, the 22-year-old who moved to Motherwell from Shrewsbury in the summer admits he could end up playing for Scotland due to the fact his mother was born in Kilmarnock.
The highly-rated winger admits he dreams of playing international football for Jamaica, but concedes he would have a big decision to make if Scotland boss George Burley came calling for his services.
"Well it's a good job I don't want to be an international cricketer as I got cramp on Saturday [against Celtic] so I wouldn't get in the England team and I guess I wouldn't get a runner against England if I was playing for the West Indies," joked Humphrey to skysports.com, referring to Andrew Strauss's refusal to allow injured South Africa captain Graeme Smith a runner in the recent ICC Champions Trophy.
Dream"Of course everyone's childhood dream is to play for their country.
"At the moment I am just trying to improve as a person and player and I believe I am in the right place for that to happen.
"I have been asked whether I would like to play for Jamaica and of course who wouldn't like to play international football.
"What people might not know is that my mum was actually born in Kilmarnock, so if I can keep improving it would be nice to think one day I might have a decision to make.
"That is a long way off at the moment. I just need to get my head down, listen to what I am being told and work as hard as I can for the team."
Humphrey has caught the eye in Motherwell's last two games following his return to the side after being given some compassionate leave by Jim Gannon for personal reasons.
The jet-heeled attacker helped Motherwell claim an impressive draw with Celtic at the weekend and he is happy with how life is going at Fir Park.
Experience"It is amazing to think I was at Accrington away this time last year and I have just played at Parkhead in front of 58,000 people," continued Humphrey.
"It was a wonderful experience and it is the sort of place I want to play at more often.
"I was disappointed we did not win, but a point and clean sheet wasn't a bad result so we now have to build on that."
Humphrey has thanked Gannon, his team-mates and the Motherwell fans for helping him through the difficult personal times he has suffered recently with his partner losing their unborn baby.
"It has been a very difficult few months as people know and again I must thank the manager, team and fans for their support," added Humphrey.
"Coming here is the best thing I could have done and I will give my all to repay the faith shown in me."
