England international Liam Plunkett has admitted that he would give serious consideration to a future playing and coaching role with USA cricket.
Speaking on BBC Radio Five Live, the 35 year-old, married to a US citizen told Phil Tufnell and Michael Vaughan

"I'm English and I'll always be an Englishman, but if I'm still fit and there's an opportunity to play at the highest level, why would I not take it?
"If I go over there and end up being a US citizen, or have a green card, I can help the development, especially being someone who has just finished with England. It would be nice to get involved in that."
Vaughan captured 201 international wickets across all formats, and won a World Cup winners medal as England beat New Zealand in a dramatic super over.
However he now appears surplus to requirements, having been left out of the 55-man training squad announced earlier this week by the ECB.
Plunkett would have to serve a residency period, but even in his late 30's he may still represent an attractive proposition to USA cricket who currently have ODI status, occupying second place in World Cricket League Two behind Oman.
