MANCHESTER — Manchester United youngster Tosin Kehinde is in talks with the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) about representing the Super Eagles, sources have told ESPN FC.
Kehinde, 19, was born in Lagos but raised in the UK and is eligible to play for either Nigeria or England.
Sources have told ESPN FC that the midfielder and his representatives met Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr and NFF vice-president Seyi Akinwunmi on Sunday.
The meeting raises the possibility that Kehinde, a regular for United’s under-23s this season, could be included in the Nigeria squad for the World Cup.
He has yet to make a senior appearance for United, although he has trained with Jose Mourinho’s first-team squad.
The NFF has not confirmed whether Kehinde has made himself available for Nigeria, but sources said it is planned that a statement will be released this week.
Nigeria play Serbia in a friendly on Tuesday before facing England in a World Cup warm-up match on June 2.
