Hoolahan pondering Ireland exit

Playmaker considering retiring after Euro 2016

Wes Hoolahan has admitted that he may hang up his Ireland boots after the Euro 2016 finals this June.

The 33-year-old only made his first competitive start in 2013 and has amassed 26 caps to-date.

However, the Norwich city player is not sure if we will add many more to his tally as he could quit this summer.

"There are a few senior players in the squad and I'm one of them," he told the Irish Sun. "I'll be 34 by the time the Euros are played which means when the next World Cup comes around I am going to be 36.

"I haven't really thought about whether I'll play on, but I will see how the summer goes and probably make a decision then.

"My contract with Norwich runs until 2017. I love it there, I've been there for eight years. It's not really my decision as to whether I stay on, so all those things are up in the air.

"I haven't thought about the Euros too much because of the situation we are in at Norwich. We're near the bottom and we have seven massive games to make ourselves safe, and I'm concentrating on that.

"If I can help us stay up, then I can look forward to the Euros, if I'm picked. I'm not just saying that. I don't take anything for granted because there are so many great players here."
