The 19-year-old is eligible for Nigeria through his father, and the national team set-up are keen to make sure that he doesn’t play for the rival side.

It is a similar situation to when Carl Jenkinson was given a cap in order to stop Finland from poaching the Arsenal man.

The forward has burst on to the scene with a series of impressive performances in recent weeks, following a good loan spell at Derby County in the Championship.

He has played for all age groups up to the Under 20’s for England, and has never given any hint of a want to play for another country at a senior level.
