Premier League club rejects Nigerian star after snubbing England


ENGLAND – Joseph Oluwabusola has paid the price for committing his international future to Nigeria, after he was released by Bournemouth, according to AllNigeriaSoccer.

The 16-year-old was listed as a player from the Premier League club by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) at the ongoing U17 World Cup in Brazil.

However, it has now emerged that he has not been on the books of the Cherries since July 2019.

It is believed Bournemouth opted not to offer Oluwabusola a scholarship, because they could not properly assess him due to his frequent trips to Abuja, to train with the Golden Eaglets since 2018.

Oluwabusola finally made his competitive debut for Nigeria after snubbing England, in the Golden Eaglets 2-1 loss to Australia on Friday and conceded two goals.
