Freddie Burns insists his prospects of featuring for England at the 2015 Rugby World Cup will help in deciding for which club he plays next season.

Gloucester fly-half Freddie Burns has said that being selected for England's 2015 Rugby World Cup squad is one of his main concerns as he searches for a new club.

The 23-year-old's contract with the Kingsholm side runs out in the summer and he has revealed that he is yet to make a decision on where to play.

He told The Mirror: "Money isn't the issue. It's a case of becoming the best player I can be. I want to play in the World Cup for England.

"I want to be winning silverware and I want to be where I'm happy and enjoy playing."

Burns, who was the leading points scorer in the 2012-13 Aviva Premiership, made his England debut in the 38-21 win over New Zealand last year.
