Fulham's on-loan winger Sheyi Ojo is at the centre of a tug of war with Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham over their international futures.

Both have played for England's U21 side under boss Aidy Boothroyd, but are can decide to represent Nigeria before a potential senior team chance with the Three Lions.

Nigeria, three-time African Champions, want to persuade the pair to switch allegiance due to their family heritage.

Ojo, now out for some time with a shoulder injury, is receiving treatment back at parent club Liverpool.

“Nigeria are trying to get as many players as they can and you can’t blame them as we have got some good players," said Boothroyd.

“You can understand why although these are lads who have played for England who have an affinity with us and a relationship.

"When it happens with Sheyi I can pick the phone up, the same with Tammy.

“It’s hard, as I can’t guarantee they are going to play because the group is so good.

"Perhaps other countries will see that and get into them and promise them the world.”
