England is currently faced with the threat of losing speedster Raheem Sterling.

Jamaica’s  Football Federation president Horace Burrell will arrive in England this week in an attempt to pry the Liverpool star from under the Football Association’s noses.

Reports are the youngster is keen on discussing the matter with Burrell and is open to the idea of representing his country of birth.

The FA beat the Reggae Boyz to Sterling after calling the teenager up to the full England squad for the World Cup qualifier against Ukraine before being assigned a spot in Stuart Pearce’s previous Under 21 squad.

England will now be deeply concerned on how this week’s discussions between Sterling and Burrell  play out, with the Liverpool starlet happy to give Burrell the chance to make his pitch.

Sterling’s mother has long been known to want her son to represent Jamaica – where the 17-year-old lived until the age of five.

England manager Roy Hodgson might look to change Sterling’s international intentions by naming the youngster in his squad for the friendly against Sweden next month.
Burrell said: ‘Based on the FIFA rules Raheem is still eligible for us. We think it is worthwhile to speak.’ Sterling will only be fully committed to a nation when he plays a competitive fixture.
