Several of Harrison's team mates have been representing their countries during the March international break including midfielder Kalvin Phillips who has quickly amassed seven caps for the Three Lions.

Leeds team mates Patrick Bamford and Luke Ayling were also tipped as possibles for Gareth Southgate's squad - and Harrison says he will be trying his utmost to follow Phillips and bag a first international call.

"Obviously I think it's something that I have always had in the back of my mind," said Harrison to BBC Radio Leeds, asked if the recent international break presented a case of what might have been or what could still be for England

"With me and Patrick and Luke Ayling we are right around that spot so I think we are are all trying to do what we can to break into that squad.

"It would be a dream come true.

"That's my next step, to try and play international football.

"I'll be doing everything that I can and striving for that."

Harrison has played twice for England's under-21s back in 2017.
