Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori admits international future up in the air

Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori admits his international future is up in the air.

England, Nigeria and Canada are in a three-way tussle for the services of Tomori, with the Chelsea centre-half's impressive displays putting him on Gareth Southgate's radar.

Tomori, who was born in Canada to Nigerian parents, but the family moved to Gravesend when he was a baby, had played for Canada's Under 20 team and for England's Under 20 and Under 21 teams.

He told the Daily Mail, "I'm a citizen of all three [countries] so we'll see. I was born in Canada and lived there about seven or eight months old. My family is Nigerian, obviously I live in England. It's nice to have that. I can't play Under-21 football anymore so the last international break I didn't get called up to anyone. Next one maybe we'll see."
