England Under-21s defender Tino Livramento insists there is no rush to make a decision on his international future.

The Newcastle star, who also qualifies for Portugal, is on Scotland's radar having returned from a serious knee injury. 

Scotland assistant John Carver confirmed this week that Livramento is on their list as he qualifies through his mother. 

But the 21-year-old, who is with the Young Lions for their Euro 2025 qualifiers with Serbia and Northern Ireland, is happy where he is. 

He said: "There's no rush to make any decision. I'm really happy with where I am now. 

"I'm really happy with the group I'm involved in, with the coach and everything. 

"I'm just enjoying getting back to playing consistently and training consistently. I'm still young, still got a while to choose and I'm very happy with where I am now. 

"I haven't seen anything and I'm sure if it was something that was at the point of being very serious my agent would let me know. 

"I have a lot of friends in the U-21s and really do enjoy coming away with the team. We've a great manager who stayed in contact with me when I was injured to make sure that I was in a good place. 

"I have a lot of respect and love for the England set-up because I've been through every age group here."

Lee Carsley's side face Serbia, who they beat 9-1 in October, in Backa Topola on Saturday before hosting Northern Ireland at Goodison Park on Tuesday. 

They are second in Group F after last month's 3-2 defeat to leaders Ukraine. 

Livramento returned to the squad for the first time in 18 months in October after being sidelined in April 2022 while at Southampton.

Having completed a £31million switch to Newcastle during the summer, the full-back now has his sights set firmly on a bright future. 

He added: "I feel like I’ve done like amazingly to move on from that part of my career. Now it's just about moving on from that point."
