O’Neil has told The News that he is dreaming of an England call up.

O’Neil told The News ‘You always dream. I played in the under 21s against a few good international sides. That gave me good experience. The full squad is a long way off. First I have to do well here.

‘I have to make sure I’m a regular here and score some more goals – and hopefully the rest will look after itself.

‘I’ve got some improving and growing to do before then. But I like to think its possible.’

‘The club’s moving forward. The start of last year was a bit of hiccup but we seem to be on the right track again now.

‘We are trying to sign some more good players which is encouraging.

‘Not I’m looking to have my first season in the top half of the Premier League’

‘Anything below mid-table will be a disappointment. We’ve finished 13th, 16th, 17th. Its time we made the step forward.

‘And once you get into that top half you never know how far you can go.
