Jagielka would welcome the Blues skipper back to the international stage.
In recent times there have been rumours that Chelsea captain John Terry would make a return to the England national team and Everton’s Phil Jagielka has backed the reports.
The Toffees skipper has become a regular for the Three Lions since the likes of Terry and Rio Ferdinand retired from international football, but says the door would be open if the 32-year-old wanted to come back.
“If JT feels that’s what he wants to do, it’s up to him,” Jagielka was quoted by Sky Sports.
“He’s playing well for Chelsea at the moment, so anything’s possible.
“Obviously it was his decision to leave in the first place and it can only be his decision to come back.”
Terry has been reinstated as a first team regular at Stamford Bridge since the return of Jose Mourinho as manager, with the centre-back being frozen out somewhat last term.
The defender has already played 16 times in all competitions in 2013/14 and many are saying that the veteran is back to the Englishman’s best.
However, the reason for Terry’s removal from the national setup came after being found guilty by the FA of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand in a Premier League match with QPR.
The former England captain also found controversy when stories were revealed linking the player with the ex-girlfriend of then team-mate Wayne Bridge.
Many believe that allowing Terry to return is simply more trouble than it is worth, especially as the national side are on a high at the moment as they prepare for next summer’s World Cup in Brazil.
