From reports exclusively gathered by editorial team AS Trencin of Slovakia right full back could be in line for a shock call up to the senior national team of Nigeria owing to his consistency this season.


The former KAA Gent U19 defender has made 16 appearances this season as a right back but did play as a left full back twice in what is a breakthrough season for him in Slovakia.

A product of the famous GBS Academy of Jos, coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Gernot Rohr is watching him closely after learning of his abilities in the 8 games he played in the qualifiers of the Europa League.

It is believed he will be called up to the team in the future if he continue to impress at Trencin with Rohr keen on boosting his options at right full back in the absence of Tyronne Ebuehi of Benfica.

Yem had a loan spell with the U19 of Gent but didn’t bag a deal with the Belgium side, hence he moved to Inter Bratislava of Slovakia from where he joined Trencin before the start of the season.
