England manager Steve McClaren has hinted that he is set to name Dean Ashton in his next England squad.
England face both Estonia and Russia in forthcoming Euro 2008 qualifiers and are already without the likes of Michael Owen and Emile Heskey.
And McClaren gave strong indication last night that Ashton, as expected, will lead the line for his country in the two fixtures.
"He has forced his way in," said McClaren.
"It was very disappointing about the injury at the start of last season with England.
"I have been watching him from pre-season onwards and he certainly comes into consideration."
Ashton has scored three goals thus far for the Hammers this season.
