Gary Cahill is hoping that his move to Chelsea will benefit both club and country.

Gary Cahill believes that his move from Bolton Wanderers to Chelsea could have a positive impact on England during Euro 2012.

The £7m signing is expected to start in defence for the Three Lions alongside John Terry and Ashley Cole, both of whom are now his club teammates.

Despite taking nothing for granted, 26-year-old Cahill is hoping that his transfer works out well for both club and country.

"I am sure that the England manager is happy that there is a possibility we could be playing together but you have to be respectful of the fact that I have to earn my position in this team by working hard in training," Cahill told Chelsea TV.

"Coming to a club like Chelsea, there are top-class, international players all the way through the squad so there is going to be strong competition and it is not going to be easy. I just hope when I get my chance I take it.

"Obviously playing with the English boys here will help our understanding. But I am taking nothing for granted. I am coming here to work hard and try to get in the team first of all."

Cahill has made seven appearances for England.
