England, Nigeria and Canada are in a three-way tussle for the services of 21 year old Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori.

Tomori is eligible to play for Nigeria as he was born to Nigerian parents, is eligible to play for Canada because he was born in Canada and is also eligible to play for England because his family moved to England when he was a baby.

The 21-year-old has not yet decided which international team he will represent.

Tomori said: “I’m a citizen of all three [countries] so we’ll see. I was born in Canada and lived there about seven or eight months old.

“My family is Nigerian, obviously I live in England. It’s nice to have that.

“I can’t play Under-21 football anymore so the last international break I didn’t get called up to anyone. Next one maybe we’ll see.”
