West Ham talent Diego Poyet comments on his 'desire' through Twitter

The midfielder cannot wait to get back to playing with the Uruguay youth team.

The international future of Diego Poyet has been up for much debate since he first came to the fore at Charlton Athletic.

His father, former Sunderland boss Gustavo Poyet, played for Uruguay, featuring 26 times for his nation. But Diego was not born there. He was born in Spain and raised in England, for whom he has already featured for the under-17s and under-19s.

However last month he represented Uruguay for the first time in his career.

The teenager played for Uruguay under-20s against France to make his debut for the country.

Of course this does not mean he can never play for England. The game was a friendly and he therefore remains eligible for England. But as he gets older it seems he is starting to edge ever closer to a future with the Uruguayan national team rather than the Three Lions.

He Tweeted this message earlier today, suggesting he is fairly committed to the cause with Uruguay... That desire to join me with the sub20 of Uruguay returned, can not stand more...

Poyet meanwhile will need to press on at club level first. He is still struggling for first-team football with The Hammers and the youngster may need to consider his future if he is to be a hit for any country at a senior level.
