Nigeria boss Vogts wants Man City's Onuoha

Nigeria boss Berti Vogts hopes to lure Manchester City defender Nedum Onuoha away from England.

Onuoha was born in Nigeria but has turned out for England Under-21s.

Yet Vogts faces a race against time as Onuoha cannot switch allegiances after his 21st birthday on November 12.

Vogts said: "I have to speak with him and let him know he has a good opportunity to do well with Nigeria.

"He hasn't much time to decide. I hope he can see the great players we have and decide to become part of such an exciting group."
