Plymouth Argyle defender Nauris Bulvitis hopes he can resurrect his international career after moving to the League Two club.

The 29-year-old Latvian last played for his country in March 2015, and has won 19 caps in total.

"Our national coach is Marian Pahars, who played at Southampton, so he knows the level here," he said.

"I'm always ready to be back in the national team and it would be nice to be back," he told BBC Radio Devon.

The centre-back, who joined Argyle last month, last played for Latvian side Spartaks Jurmal and has played in six countries, including Lithuania, Slovakia and Switzerland.

He also helped Inverness win the Scottish First Division as a loanee in the 2009-10 season.

"I'm very excited," added Bulvitis, who has yet to play in English football.

"I don't know the league very well, so I'll have to learn a lot, but I'm looking forward to it.

"I'll do my best every day and in every game and whatever the gaffer wants from me, I will try to do my best."

Plymouth Argyle manager Derek Adams. added: "I've known Nauris for a number of years now, he played in Scotland and I've watched his career over a number of seasons.

"He's a no-nonsense centre-half who'll head it and kick it, and that's something we were looking for."
