Sheyi Ojo is considering accepting a switch in allegiance to represent Nigeria, as he is ready to listen to officials from the NFF in the coming days.
Though Ojo, who is on loan at Craven Cottage from Liverpool, is already a successful youth international with England, whose team he inspired to win this year’s FIFA U-20 World Cup, he appears ready to make the switch.
Before now, Ojo had also been approached by Nigeria last year but the left footed ace turned down the offer of a chance to join the under-23 team for the Rio 2016 Olympics.
Back then, he reportedly asked for more time to mull over the issue as he was focused on establishing himself at Liverpool after several injury set back since he made the step up to the main team.
His international future alongside that of Tammy Abraham is still unclear according to England U21 manager Aidy Boothroyd, who admitted that the duo are among players targeted by Nigeria ahead of their campaign at the World Cup in Russia next year.
