Former Bournemouth and current Villarreal winger, Arnaut Danjuma said that he is ever ready to switch allegiance to Nigeria, as reported by Goal.com.
“I’ve heard some bits about Nigeria but I can’t say too much about it though. My mum is Nigerian and my father lived 23 years in Nigeria as well,” Danjuma said, as per Bournemouth Echo. Nigerians have watched in awe as the lad took Manchester United by storm in the champions league recently and wouldn't mind seeing him in the green and white colors.
“The culture is still within the family, so it does not disregard for the Nigerian side. It’s a choice I will think about but I need some time, obviously.
“I think they are interested but obviously I play for the Dutch national team already, I scored for the national team already, so I’ve made that decision.
“With the choice, I would like to represent Holland as well but then again I’m not being called up at the moment. So on the back of that, maybe I need to make some decisions.
“I’ve played for Holland at senior level. One cap in the Nations League and one against Belgium but that wasn’t an official match. They have changed the rules and anything can happen, the doors are still open either ways"
