The 25-year-old is keen to end his international exile according to his former manager at Molineux who also expects him to be playing in the Premier League next seasonMick McCarthy has claimed that Wolves striker Steven Fletcher would like to resolve his differences with Scotland manager Craig Levein and make himself available for selection.
Fletcher has been one of Wolves' better players this season and is their top goal scorer having notched 10 Premier League goals. However, he has not been selected for his national side since he rejected a call-up in February 2011 by text message.
Speaking to BBC Scotland, McCarthy said: "[Steven] Fletcher wants to play and would be more than happy to sit down and resolve it. But I certainly don’t want to be giving advice to Craig Levein because he’s a good manager.
"It seems to me that it’s not such a big deal but a big deal has been made of it. The more Fletcher plays well and scores goals in the Premier League, it makes it harder for Craig because people are going to put pressure on him."
Scotland manager Levein has made it clear that Fletcher has to apologise to be considered again, and McCarthy thinks the striker will stay in the Premier League should Wolves go down to bolster his chances for being selected.
"Sadly, it looks like Wolves are going down and Steven Fletcher will be courted by teams in the top half of the table because he’s a top player," McCarthy continued.
"I was his manager and I was concerned about a player of his ability not playing at international level. He should be recognised as a Scotland international."
