The Leeds United man hasn’t declared for the Republic of Ireland yet.
Leeds United’s Patrick Bamford still hasn’t decided his international future it seems.
Republic of Ireland boss Mick McCarthy reiterated that the onus is on Bamford to phone him, when asked why the Leeds hitman hasn’t been included in any of his squads since returning to the helm.
The 25-year-old was born in England but is eligible to represent the Boys in Green.
McCarthy said on Wednesday that he had no intention of ‘chasing’ the Whites striker [The Irish Times] and some Leeds supporters don’t blame the former Ipswich Town manager.

Bamford joined Leeds in a £7 million deal [Daily Mail] from Middlesbrough last summer but didn’t enjoy a brilliant first season in West Yorkshire.
The former Chelsea-owned striker netted nine goals in a season that was hindered by injury for the most part, but his end-of-season form, coupled with his theatrics in a fiery game against Aston Villa, has led to some supporters losing faith in the potential Irish international.
