Michael Jackson's daughter Paris has given fans of American football team the Philadelphia Eagles reason to celebrate - she has provisionally accepted a job as a cheerleader.

The 14 year old will have to wait four years before she can officially sign up, but she admits she's interested in a sideline job after the team's cheerleading official, Barbara Zaun, offered her the job during a recent Tmz.com chat.

Impressed by footage of Paris' pom pom shaking efforts for her high school basketball squad, which leaked online, Zaun said, "We think Paris will make a great Eagle cheerleader! We thought that she had a lot of poise, confidence, and enthusiasm in her cheer performance. Paris has that wow factor that makes a great cheerleader.

"We hope that she will try out for the team and be an Eagles cheerleader."

And Paris is definitely interested. In a tweet on Wednesday (13Mar13), she wrote, "i'd actually love to... the philadelphia eagles are my favorite football team so..."
