Republic of Ireland coach Giovanni Trapattoni admits that he is considering Wes Hoolahan for his Euro 2012 squad.

Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni has admitted that he is considering making Wes Hoolahan part of his squad for Euro 2012.

The Norwich City winger has yet to receive a cap from Trapattoni, with his one and only appearance for Ireland coming four years ago.

However, Trapattoni has revealed that he has discussed the 29-year-old with his assistant Marco Tardelli.

"I have spoken to Marco about him, he has been fantastic," Trapattoni told The Sun. "This is not a campaign for too many young players but Hoolahan is not young.

"He played well in the last game I saw and we will consider this option."

Hoolahan came on as a substitute as Norwich lost 6-1 to Manchester City earlier today.
