Wales: Hull City defender James Chester pledges future to Wales

James Chester of Hull City celebrates scoring against Manchester United

Hull City defender James Chester has pledged his international future to Wales, BBC Wales understands.

The 25-year-old, born in Warrington, has a Welsh mother who was born in Rhyl.

He has made himself available for the Wales squad for the match against the Netherlands on 4 June, if fit.

Chester, a regular for Steve Bruce's side this season, is currently a doubt for the FA Cup Final because of a hamstring injury.

He joined the Tigers in 2011 from Manchester United.

Chester came through the youth academy at Old Trafford and made one first team appearance for the Red Devils - the 4-2 Carling Cup semi-final win over Derby County in 2009.
