Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Lee Camp has said that he is keen to play for Northern Ireland.

English-born Camp, 26, qualifies for Northern Ireland through his Belfast-born grandfather.

He kept 19 clean sheets for Forest last season and played for England Under-21s but his hopes of earning a call-up to Fabio Capello's squad have been dashed.

"Hopefully I will be approved to play for Northern Ireland," Camp told the Sunday Life.

"The process has started. I have produced a birth certificate and things are moving along."

Northern Ireland manager Nigel Worthington has asked the Irish FA to set the wheels in motion on Camp's eligibility for his side.

Veteran Birmingham keeper Maik Taylor, 39, is the current Northern Ireland number one.
