Rodwell said he flew to a Caribbean island to recover from the setback.

But the ex-Sunderland and Blackburn Rovers midfielder didn't hold back in revealing his X-rated methods, during a frank interview as an England Under-21 footballer.

And his answer caught boss Stuart Pearce so off-guard he spat his beverage out.

Journalist Paul Jiggins told Sun podcast Swedes 2 Turnips 1: "I remember one trip, we asked, I'm going say his name what the hell, Jack Rodwell.

"He'd been out injured at Everton, just making his name there and had a serious injury.

"Everton agreed we could speak to him, the FA handled the interview, it gave them their first taste of being interviewed on the international stage.

"So we said to Jack, how did you convalesce and do rehabilitation for recovery after your operation?

"He said I went away to a Caribbean island, just had three weeks sitting there, feet up just watching box sets and DVDs on my laptop.

"Of course the question of a journalist, because this stuff writes itself, was what sort of films were you watching?

"And without any flicker, anything like that, no irony he just went 'oh, porn'.

"Stuart Pearce spat his latte out, and I went Jack I'm going to ask you that question again, and the answer you're going to give me is 24.

"That's how long ago it was. No wonder he was out for so long."

Daily Star Online has approached Rodwell's representatives for a response.
