Mark Bunn is hoping to make the most of his chance at Norwich City by forcing his way into the Republic of Ireland squad.

Norwich City goalkeeper Mark Bunn has revealed that he is eager to represent the Republic of Ireland at international level.

The 28-year-old has recently been installed to the Norwich starting lineup following a thigh injury suffered by regular number one keeper John Ruddy.

Now that he has the chance to catch Giovanni Trapattoni's eye, Bunn is hoping that he can stake a claim for a slot in upcoming squads.

"It is one of my aims to try and break into the Republic of Ireland squad and if the opportunity arose I would definitely be interested in playing for them," Bunn told Sky Sports News.

"I think every player wants to play international football and play at the highest level and I am no different. I believe the goalkeeping spot with the Republic is up for grabs really since Shay Given retired.

"Keiren Westwood is first-choice at the minute, but he is not playing regularly for Sunderland. I now have a run of games in the Norwich team and it is a good time for me to show what I can do and impress hopefully."

Despite being born in London, Bunn qualifies for Ireland through his father and grandmother.
