Cape Town - Southampton midfielder Oriol Romeu is not focusing on a potential national team call-up to Spain following a ringing endorsement from Claude Puel.
The Saints boss holds the belief that the 25-year-old Barcelona academy graduate is one of the best deep-lying-playmakers in the division - and fully warrants a place in Julen Lopetegui's future plans.
Romeu though says he just wants to continue producing consistent displays for his club, and if a call-up does arise - it would be an added bonus.
"It's something nice to hear," he told the Daily Echo, when asked about Puel's comment. "I feel proud because he thought I can get there.
"But I don't lose sleep over it. I'm happy as I am. I'm happy doing the job I am.
"I enjoy just going out there, but if that comes I will be happy and that will because of the amazing job we are doing here.
"If it comes I will be happy, but if its doesn't I will keep doing the same."
Puel's men next welcome Everton to the St Mary's stadium on Sunday where they will be looking to continue there fine start to the season, where they currently sit 11th on the standings.
Kick off is at 18:30.
