The angular defender believes his chances of representing England are limited, due to the amount of quality centre halves ahead of him in the pecking order, and this could prompt a call to Irish chief Brian Kerr.
"I know it's going to be hard for me to push my way in to the England team now," he told the club's website. "Especially with the likes of Rio coming back, John Terry doing well, Ledley King doing very well and Sol Campbell.
"Maybe I should be looking at different avenues, what with the World Cup coming up in two years' time.
"I can still play for the Republic of Ireland and that is something that I have been seriously considering.
"I am at that age now where I am playing regularly in The Premiership, one of the best leagues in the world, and I wouldn't say I've been overlooked by England but maybe if I can look down another road and try and get in there, then maybe I will."
