The desire of Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, to integrate young footballers of Nigerian descent into the team has received a big boost after the coach confirmed he has held positive talks with the father of Chelsea youngster, Ola Aina in London.

Aina has already represented England at all junior levels, including U-16 and U-20 and has the potential to step up into the Three Lions.

The right fullback was given his professional debut by manager Antonio Conte in a 3–2 victory over Bristol Rovers in the English Football League Cup in August.

He made his Premier League debut in a 3–0 victory over champions Leicester City, when he replaced Nigerian, Victor Moses.

The player is eligible to play for Nigeria as he is yet to be capped in a competitive game by England.
