The Los Angeles Galaxy star has been open about his ambition to represent his country in next year's Olympics.
Despite his desire, Pearce, who was announced as manager of Great Britain's men's football team this morning, admits that he will need to consider all of his options.
"I've no idea. I've not seen him play recently," said Pearce. "He's a bit old for the Under-21s.
"I'm not going into this job looking only to select English players. It should be made up if at all possible of all the home nations.
"They should come forward and put their players up for selection. A lot of it will depend on the players' mentality. If the players want to be part of it then that would be fantastic. I think they will."
