According to reports exclusively gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com former Liverpool teen prospect Jordon Ibe is willing to hear from Nigeria about playing for the Super Eagles.

Ibe asked for more time when he was approached by former coach Sunday Oliseh while at Liverpool, but the 20 year old forward who was robbed at knifepoint yesterday is reportedly willing to make a u-turn.

Now at Premiership side Bournemouth, the discussion about his international future, popped up during discussions with an official of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) about the robbery incident he suffered.

” We thank God he wasn’t hurt in the incident. Coach Gernot Rohr has plans of meeting with him in England when he visits again. As a matter of fact, a family member called us few days ago to know the exact date Rohr wil be in England” He told Owngoalnigeria.com.

” He is willing to listen to what we have to offer. We are hoping he finds the project enticing enough to dump England where he is a youth international and play for Nigeria at senior level”.
