Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe has told Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh that he will take a decision on his international future in 2016, when he would be 21 years old.
Oliseh is a big fan of Ibe, who he believes will fit nicely in the type of football he plans to play with the Super Eagles and so has gone ahead to sound out the exciting winger in England.
AfricanFootball.com further gathered that the player has also spoken with his 42-year-old Nigerian father, David, on the prospects of featuring for the three-time African champions.
“He has consulted with his family and he now wants to wait a little longer till when he’s 21 and that will be in 2016 before he decides on the direction of his international career,” said a top source.
The Nigerian-born forward will be 21 December 2016.
Observers have suggested this position could also buy time for the Liverpool ace to establish himself at his EPL club as well as leave the door open for the England Three Lions.
Ibe has already represented England at U18, U19 and U20 levels.
