Gernot Rohr has revealed that Chelsea stars Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori are not in his immediate plans for the Super Eagles. Tamilore and Fikayo who are born to Nigerian parents are both eligible to play for Nigeria and England.
The international futures of both Chelsea stars are still up in the air with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) trying to convince both to commit to Nigeria.
Rohr is, however, is not holding out for both players and has revealed that he does not have the Chelsea youngsters in his immediate plans.
“They are both interesting players, but we have made our immediate plans without Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori,” Rohr told BBC Sport.
“They are not interested in discussing their international options at the moment and we need to respect that.”
Abraham has played for England at several youth levels and has two caps for the senior national although he is yet to play a competitive game for the Three Lions which makes him still eligible to play for Nigeria.
All that could change as he is reportedly been assured that he will in the England squad for their Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Bulgaria in the next international break.
