Bolton Wanderers defender Gary Cahill's valuation has reportedly gone up by £2.5 million following his international debut.
The 24-year-old had received his first call-up in June last year, when Rio Ferdinand had to pull out of a friendly against Kazakhstan. But the defender had to wait over a year to make his first appearance for England, as he was brought on as a substitute when Michael Dawson succumbed to injury during the recent 4-0 victory over Bulgaria.
The stopper had been thought to have signed a contract with the Trotters that included a buyout clause of £15m, but now The Mirror claims that the international debut has triggered that sum to be raised to £17.5m.
Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United have in the past been linked with moves for Cahill, who is expected to make his first start for England - in the Euro 2012 qualifier against Switzerland - as Dawson is out injured.
