“Since then I’ve had a few false dawns with some people saying they can sort this out and that out, but it has not happened and I’ve enjoyed the club side of football.

“It is not that important to me to be honest. If I was to receive a call-up then that would be great and there would be a decision to make, but I’ve not received one.”

He also confessed that he was supporting the Dream Team VI when they won bronze at the 2016 Olympics.

“I’m happy to be a fan for now,” Onuoha added.

“I kept an eye on the boys at the Olympics where they always seem to do well.

“For anyone like me who was born there you hold the success of your nation close to your heart and like to see them doing well. Unfortunately, the gold medal was not to be.”

The defender played 20 times for England’s U-21 team. He started his career at Manchester City who he played for 91 times.
