The Three Lions captain is keen to leave Spurs in pursuit of success, but more pressing is his desire to get his hands on some silverware with his country this summer as they aim for Euro 2020 glory.
“I think winning with England has always been a dream, always been an ultimate goal,” he said ahead of this evening’s Group D clash with Scotland.
“I think whenever you put on this shirt, the aim is to win and obviously we’ve not won a major trophy for a long, long time.
“We all have that opportunity to be part of something special and I’m relishing that challenge, I love to take that challenge on.
“Of course, there’s a lot of hard work and major tournaments aren’t easy to win.
“But to have that opportunity now is exciting for me and of course, like me and all the rest of the players, we want to make our country proud, make each other proud, make our friends and family proud.
“Wearing that shirt does that and obviously to win a major tournament would do that as well, so I’ll be doing everything and I know everyone else will be doing everything to try and make that happen.”
