A Third Nigeria-Eligible Player Added To Chelsea Pre-Season Squad Ahead Of FriendliesPublished: July 08, 2019
A third player of Nigerian descent eligible to represent the Nigeria national teams has been added to Chelsea's pre-season squad ahead of friendlies this week.
England U21 striker Tammy Abraham has linked up with the Blues squad in Dublin and is now available for selection alongside Ike Ugbo and Fikayo Tomori when they face Bohemians on Wednesday evening.
The three young stars were all loaned out to Football League clubs last summer, with Abraham and Tomori spending the whole of the season at Aston Villa and Derby County respectively while Ugbo was at Scunthorpe United until January 2019.
Chelsea's longest-serving player Kenneth Omeruo has not been considered for the trip simply because he is on international duty with the Super Eagles at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations.
Former Nigeria winger Victor Moses ended speculation over his future after he reported for pre-season training at Fenerbahce last week and is not part of the group.
Young midfielders Tariq Uwakwe and Faustino Anjorin, and second-year scholar Jordan Aina are training with Chelsea's youth teams ahead of the new season.
Chelsea's second friendly in Dublin comes up against St Patrick's Athletic on Saturday, July 13.
