Niyi chooses the Netherlands over Nigeria

Versatile Ajax Amsterdam youngster Niyi Scholten has opted to play for the Netherlands over Nigeria at international level.

According to All Nigeria Soccer, the former FC Twente Youth player was impressed with how he was treated by the Royal Dutch Football Association since he started playing for their international Under-15s.

"Niyi is one of the young Nigerian players at Ajax, and he has no plans to represent Nigeria," All Nigeria Soccer quoted a source.

"He is happy playing for the Netherlands U15s and hopes to represent their senior team. He has not been contacted by Nigeria because they don't have a U15 team," the source said.
