John Obi Mikel´s future will not become clear until FIFA have finished their investigation into his alleged agreement with Manchester United.

John Shittu, agent for the 19-year-old Lyn Oslo midfielder, claims his client can choose which club to play for. However, until the probe into the legality of his agreement with United, Mikel cannot decide who to sign for when the transfer window opens again in January.

PA Sport understands Chelsea are still firmly in the hunt for his signature and have complied with all of FIFA´s requests for paperwork and information relating to the case. Although Mikel signed for United, Chelsea were left fuming and quickly offered the youngster a more lucrative contract.
