Arsenal winger, Bukayo Saka, has said he hasn’t decided whether to play for Nigeria or England as neither country has approached him to pledge his allegiance.
Saka was born to Nigerian parents but he played for England at youth level. The winger told BBC Sport that he is always thinking about playing for Nigeria or England but hasn’t made a decision yet.
“I am always thinking about it but I haven’t made a decision yet,” the 18-year-old told BBC Sport.
“No-one has been in touch but when I make a decision you will find out,” he added.
Saka made history when he began to play for Arsenal at age 17, the first player born in 2001 to play in English Premier League.
The youngster thanked former coach, Unai Emery, for giving him the chance to play for Arsenal at such a young age.
“I have a lot of thanks to give him because he gave me so much confidence, he gave me my debut and he kept pushing me. I am grateful to him always.
“It’s just something I have always dreamed of, coming up from the academy to the first team.”
He also said he looked forward to playing under new head coach, Mikel Arteta.
“I have heard positive things about him and I am looking forward to working with him.”
Saka has scored two goals and assisted five in 15 appearances in all competitions this season.
