Reggae Boys plan Liverpool winger talks
Liverpool news: England prospect Raheem Sterling eyed up by Jamaica president Horace Burrell
The 17-year-old winger will meet with Jamaican president Horace Burrell when he flies to the UK later this week, in a bid to snatch the youngster from under the Football Association's noses.
His impressive early season form on Merseyside earned him a shock call-up to Roy Hodgson's Three Lions squad for the World Cup qualifying draw against Ukraine at Wembley in September.
The talented teenager was named on the bench, but remained an unused substitute, which is why he is still eligible to play for Jamaica at international level, despite featuring for England at youth level.
According to the Daily Mail, Sterling is open to the idea of representing the country of his birth, after it was revealed his mother wants her son to commit his future to Jamaica - where he lived until the age of five.
Burrell said: "Based on the FIFA rules Raheem is still eligible for us. We think it is worthwhile to speak."
The FA initially appeared to have beaten the Reggae Boys to Sterling, but will now be sweating on how this week's discussions pan out.
