Oliseh revealed that he had held discussions with the Liverpool starlet to play for the Eagles, but talks fell through.

“Jordon Ibe’s family informed me by a telephone call, that he was giving priority to an England call-up. We wish them well,” Oliseh tweeted.

England boss Roy Hodgson has been aware of Nigeria’s interest in Ibe, but admitted he won’t rush to give him a call-up just to lock him up.

Did Ibe make the right decision? What are your thoughts?
