Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter hopes the Cherries' promotion to the second tier will help his international prospects.
Arter, who played a crucial role in Bournemouth's promotion from League One with eight goals in 36 appearances, qualifies for the Republic of Ireland through his grandmother.
And despite having not played for the Emerald Isle since the Under-19 age group he is keen to force his way into the senior squad.
"If I play well and do well next season, maybe I will get a call-up," he told the Daily Echo. "Being in the second tier of English football is going to be a help.
"I don't know if any of the Republic of Ireland squad members are playing in League One.
"The majority of players are in the Premier League and Championship, so to be in the Championship and to test myself against that level of competition will only do me good.
"Hopefully, it will be down to me to play well and do better than the people that are in front of me."
