England international Wilfried Zaha is set to change his national team allegiance to his native Ivory Coast.
The Crystal Palace winger was a regular in the youth sides and has played twice for England, the country in which he has lived in since the age of four. Zaha made his England bow in 2012 when he came on against Sweden in the game where Zlatan Ibrahimovic destroyed England with a four-goal haul and the 24-year old also made an appearance as a substitute in a win over Scotland in 2013.
Zaha is said to have rejected the advances from his birth country on two occasions, but recent reports indicate that he has had a change of heart. Journalist Oluwashina Okeleji reported that Sir Alex Ferguson's last ever signing in management is set for the switch.
Because the games were only friendlies, Zaha is allowed to change his allegiance and play for another country.

Should he make the move, Zaha will be one of many players to change national team allegiance.
Here is an XI we put together of players to have switched nationality when Stoke City's Bojan was rumoured to be looking into representing Serbia.
