Sunderland ace open to International return

Sunderland striker Steven FletcherSteven Fletcher has stated his willingness to return to international duty next month.

The Scotland international has been absent since a public falling out with manager Craig Levein following a late international withdrawal from the Sunderland striker.

Scotland face Wales and Belgium in World Cup qualifying next month, with the £14 million man ideal to lead the line for the Tartan Army should he solve his differences with Levein.

When asked on Twitter whether he would return to the international stage, the 25 year old simply replied, “yes”.

However The Daily Mail report that bridges have been burned as SFA insiders claim it is too late for Fletcher to reconcile with the ex-Dundee United boss, having already turned down opportunities to represent Scotland since his falling out with the manager.

The Former Wolves and Burnley man has settled instantly on Wearside netting all three shots he’s taken in red and white,  following his transfer from the Black Country. While Fletcher is relishing life up-front for Sunderland, it remains a problem area for Scotland, who so far have kept faith in Kenny Miller, despite the 32 year old showing signs of decline last year at Cardiff and now playing in Vancouver.
