Tino Livramento insists he will take his time making a decision over his international after Scotland assistant John Carver revealed the right-back is of interest to Steve Clarke.

The defender joined Newcastle from Southampton for £40million during the summer transfer window and has made an impressive start to life at St James' Park.

Livaramento is currently on international duty with England U21s but would qualify to play for Scotland through his mother, while also being able to turn out for Portugal as well.

And Carver recently stated that the players is on Clarke's "radar" and that he is "a great admirer" of him.
