According to reports gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com Chelsea Super teen Tammy Abraham, who is eligible to play for Nigeria and England won’t be approached by the coach of Nigeria Gernot Rohr, who is presently in London.

President of the Nigeria Football Federation Amaju Pinnick revealed early this month, that he is in talks with the father of the Bristol City loanee over switching his international allegiance from England to Nigeria.

However, Rohr who is in London and visited Chelsea training ground earlier today, has no plans of meeting up with the lad who has taken the English Championship by storm this season.

Rather the coach had a meeting with manager Antonio Conte and Technical Director Mike Emenalo, a former Nigeria international on the reasons behind the none playing time Mikel is currently enduring at Chelsea.

Conte reportedly pleaded with Chelsea to give Mikel game time with their youth side to help the Nigerian maintain his match fitness as he is pivotal to the plans of Nigeria, in their quest to be at the next World Cup in Russia.
