Hot on the heels of the capture of players of Nigerian descent born in England, coach of the Super Eagles Gernot Rohr has also secured the services of Kingsley Ehizibue.
Rohr held productive talks with the Dutch youth international, and the winger who can also play as a right back has accepted to pledge his international future to Nigeria ahead of the Netherlands and Germany.
Born to Nigerian parents in Germany, the 21 year old moved to the Netherlands at a young age, and progressed through the ranks of PEC Zwolle before breaking into the first team last season.
Ehizibue will most likely make his debut for Nigeria in one of the proposed friendly games against Corsica or Congo DR in May, before the Eagles AFCON 2019 qualifiers Against South Africa in June.
He will team up with fellow Dutch-Nigerian Tyroone Ebuehi of ADO Den Haag as Rohr continue to bolster his options at right back.
Ebuehi and Ehizibue share the same agent, but they will turn to rivals in the Super Eagles as they are both right full backs.
