Report: Jordon Ibe ready to join Super Eagles

FC Bournemouth winger, Jordon Ibe is willing to rescind his initial decision and pledge football allegiance to Nigeria.

Former
Liverpool ace Ibe initially turned down pleas to play for the Super
Eagles when approached by former Eagles gaffer, Sunday Oliseh, but is
now ready to make a U-turn.

A source close to the Nigerian Football Federation said: “Jordon 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.”

Ibe has played for England at all levels from u-18s and has four u-21 caps.

The Cherries star was reportedly a victim of a £25,000 robbery earlier this month.

The
ex-Liverpool winger was understood to have been hit by a vehicle
containing four men, who threatened Ibe with a knife before taking off
with his watch on November 6.
