JOHN O’SHEA has hailed James Mcclean’s “amaz­ing” im­pact on the Premier League.

And O’shea reck­ons his Sun­der­land team-mate is al­ready a cer­tainty to fol­low him into the Repub­lic of Ire­land team.

Mcclean has played only 10 games for Sun­der­land and missed out when the Ir­ish squad was named for this month’s friendly against the Czech Repub­lic.

But O’shea said: “James has been amaz­ing for us and his time will come.

“He prob­a­bly had so many peo­ple telling him that he was go­ing to be in the squad that it will have been a bit dis­ap­point­ing for him.

“But, as the man­ager has said, he’s the fu­ture for Ire­land and he’ll have plenty of time to get his caps.”
