However, QPR’s director of football Ferdinand, a player who played in the Premier League for many years and was part of England’s Euro 96 and 1998 World Cup squads believes Eze an England U-20 international has the talent to challenge for a place in Gareth Southgate’s squad.
“A lot of the time you need to be in the Premier League to be recognised but he has shown the kind of form and, if he continues to develop in the way he is developing and keeps showing the type of football he has been playing, he is certainly going to put himself in the frame,” Ferdinand told Sky Sports News.
“People are going to start talking about him playing for England.
“He came through and we have got a few others at the club too. Bright Osayi-Samuel is doing extremely well, as is Ryan Manning at left-back. He is not English but he is in the Ireland set-up.”
Eze form has seen Tottenham, Crystal Palace, Sheffield United, and West Ham but the Nigerian descent current deal with the Championship runs out in 2021.
