Cardiff manager Neil Warnock has insisted that Harry Arter hasn’t called time on his international career and still wants to wear the green shirt.
The on-loan Bournemouth midfielder has made three appearances for the Bluebirds since linking up with the club in August.
During that time, he has impressed Warnock with his combative displays.
And despite the Roy Keane bust up, leaked via a What’s App message, Warnock believes the player will make himself available for international selection.
“Harry loves his country and wants to play for them again,” said Warnock.
"Martin (O'Neill) doesn't need me to tell him that Harry's a good player to have in the squad. I'm sure Martin will get this sorted in the next few weeks."
Part of the fallout with Keane centered on Arter sitting out a training session due to injury.
But Warnock maintains that if the player was fit, he would have taken an active part in the session.
He said: "The one thing you can't complain about (with) Harry is training. He trains too much and I have to curb him at times because he trains like he plays.
“He gets booked every game! I don't see his training being an issue."
