Jack Rodwell's recent move from Manchester City to Sunderland should inspire a large group of young, faltering Englishmen to search for a transfer to save their careers.
According to Luke Roberts of The Telegraph, the £10 million deal was spurred by Rodwell's inactivity this summer during England's World Cup campaign.
The publication quotes the 23-year-old as saying:
Watching the World Cup left a little bit of a bitter taste in my mouth, I was supporting the team 100 per cent, but I also wanted to be there so I think it’s time I put that right, get back playing and get back in the squad.
It will take some form for former Everton man to force his way back into the international fold, but his move to Sunderland is a step in the right direction.
With Rodwell's ambition in mind, here are 10 Englishmen, aged 26 and under, who need a move to save their careers.
