Transfer: How Southampton Decision can stop Nigeria player from AFCON 2023

Championship side, Southampton's decision not to sanction Nigeria eligible player Nathan Tella move to new promoted Premier League side, Burnley can impact Nigeria national team selectors from considering him for the next AFCON in 2024.

The saints decided to keep their player because he already has promotion-winning experience under his belt and that will be extremely valuable for head coach Martin who will want as many proven winners in his dressing room as possible.

The winger already knows what it takes to be part of the best team in the Championship and there's no doubt the Saints' boss will be drawing on that knowledge throughout the 2023/24 campaign if Tella remains on the south coast.Proven goalscorers at this level don't come cheap, so the Saints will want to retain as many as possible and this is why it's no surprise that they want to keep hold of Tella.

Tella has not been capped at any level for England and he is eligible for Nigeria. He declared in one of his previous interview that he is willing to wear the green white green of Nigeria
