Coleman to consult Ramsey

Wales manager Chris Coleman has said he would consult captain Aaron Ramsey before approaching Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross over playing for Wales.

Shawcross, 24, made the headlines in 2010 after his challenge broke Ramsey's leg in two places, with the midfielder initially ignoring the defender's attempts at apology.

The former Manchester United youngster, who qualifies for Wales after spending five years of compulsary education in the principality, previously turned down an approach from former Wales boss Gary Speed.

Quoted in The Sun, Coleman said: "Ryan is a good player who could strengthen us. I will have a conversation with Aaron because he's somebody I respect a great deal, he's our captain and an important player. I won't shy away from it because there are issues.''

Shawcross had said in July 2011: "I have not considered Wales. Obviously he (Speed) wants me to play for Wales, but I made a decision and I am going to stick with it. Hopefully I can prove I am good enough to get into the England team.''

Coleman is also hoping to convince Cardiff defender Ben Turner and Swansea full-back Angel Rangel to represent Wales in the upcoming World Cup qualifying campaign.
