Jlloyd has confirmed on his Icons website that he can play for Trinidad and Tobago and says the reports that the club are trying to block him are untrue:

‘There is no truth whatsoever in the story that Aston Villa are preventing me from playing for my country. I spoke to our assistant manager Roy Aitken and he said the club had no problem with it, and were just waiting for official confirmation. He was all for it. There has been a lot speculation about my future in international football and I want to set the record straight. ‘It is true that I may qualify to play for Trinidad and Tobago. I was born in Trinidad and it would make me proud to play for them. Yes, I have played for England Under-21s, but there may be a possibility that I’m able to switch allegiance.’

He denies he is ‘jumping on the bandwagon’ and says he still hasn’t made up his mind.
