Chelsea whiz kid striker, Tammy Abraham has said he is not dumping England to play for Nigeria.
This has put spanners in the works of efforts by the Nigeria FA to lure Abraham to don the green and white colours of Nigeria.
NFF President, Amaju Pinnick had said he held good discussions with the young striker who is presently on loan to English Premier league side, Swansea.
“Most recently, there was a meeting with Tammy, which Tammy’s agent, Neil Fewills, also attended. It was a useful meeting, and I can say the talks are at an appreciable level now and all is looking good.
“Tammy is like a son to me, because his father was my childhood friend. I believe he is a good prospect for the Super Eagles and the effort is well worth it.” Pinnick had told thenff.com.
However, in a statement on Thursday, Abraham insisted: “Contrary to reports in the media today I would like to clarify that I have not agreed to switch my National team allegiance.
“I can confirm I met the President of the NFF after our last game against Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday given he is a friend of my father.
“However, any suggestion that I have made a decision to change my international representation is incorrect and wide of the mark.
