Schneiderlin has been repeatedly overlooked by his native France despite his continued good form in the Premier League this season and is unlikely to force his way into the set-up for this summer's World Cup.
The 24-year-old insisted that he did not worry too much about being called up for international duty but hinted that he may consider the residency ruling that could see him qualify to play for the Three Lions in the future.
"That's life. I left France very young and maybe because I played in the second division they lost me a bit and prefer other players who play in France. That's not up to me, it's people's tastes. I just do my best," Schneiderlin is quoted as saying by PA.
"Never say never. Some people tell me I am [eligible for England], yes, so I think I am. Don't give me any time limit, I'll just see. Of course it's frustrating but I just need to keep focused and finish as high as possible and then we'll see after the World Cup."
Schneiderlin has made 30 appearances for Southampton this season, helping the Saints to eighth in the Premier League table.
