Oliseh meets Liverpool's Jordon Ibe: Wants him to play for Super Eagles

Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh has made a personal approach to try to persuade Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe to switch his international allegiance from England.

Oliseh visited the 19-year-old at the Reds' Melwood training base for talks on Wednesday, sources have told ESPN FC.

Ibe has represented England up to under-20 level, and is set to move up to the under-21 team this season.

He could still play for Nigeria, though, because he has not yet played for England in a senior competitive international.

The Football Association faces a battle to avoid losing the London-born teenager, who qualifies to play for the Super Eagles through his father, David.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has indicated that Ibe will have a significant role to play for his club over the coming months.

The winger impressed, mainly in a wing-back role, during the second half of last season after Rodgers recalled him early from a loan spell at Championship side Derby.
