“Cletus has been attracting interest from some top European clubs for almost a year now, especially after the Viarregio Cup in Italy this February. We are happy, but not in a hurry,” he added.

“He will go back to school in Lagos after WAFU B U17 tournament in Accra and our prayer is for the Golden Eaglets to excel at the tournament.

“There is no premiership club interest for him. These are mere speculations in the media. He is just 16 years old and we will not rush him to play foreign football now.

“We will continue to use our template for his development,” he concluded.

Golden Eaglets will tackle Niger in the second game in the tournament this Sunday at 7pm Nigeria time. Cletus was voted the MVP in the goalless affair with Burkina Faso on Thursday.
