Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Dominic Iorfa who is on loan to fellow Championship side Ipswich has confirmed his readiness to represent Nigeria in the future ‎despite playing for England at various youth levels.


Iorfa who is the son of former Nigeria international Dominic Iorfa told Ipswich Town’s Magazine that his father would like him to play for Nigeria, but for now he is focused on doing well with his loan side Ipswich Town.

” Maybe my dad would like me to play for Nigeria in the future, we will see but he understands it’s a big year for me and my priority is to progress with Ipswich. He has always been there for me and I have taken his advice. He has been in my shoes, so he knows what it’s all about” Iorfa said.

Comfortable as a right back or central defender, the 22 year old was voted the Football League Young Player of the month in January 2015 ‎after his breakthrough into the first team of Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Aready his father has confirmed the willingness of his son to represent Nigeria after reaching the age of 22, which he said a decison will be made on his international career when he turned down invitation from Nigeria for his son to join the Nigeria Olympic team of 2016.

Coach of the Super Eagles Gernot Rohr also met with the defender in England last year when he paid a visit to first choice goalkeeper Carl Ikeme, a meeting which according to Iorfa cost his son his spot at the Championship side.
