Former Nigeria international Dominic Iorfa has brushed off recent reports claiming that his son, also named Dominic, prefers a move to West Ham from his present club, Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The former Lobi Stars vice chairman, however, disclosed that a number of English clubs are interested in signing his son but the decision rests with "his representatives and (his present) club."

“It’s a lie and I wonder where that came from,” Iorfa, who played for Queens Park Rangers, said in a statement officially released through his publicist, Ojeikere Aikhoje.

“Although he is wanted by several Premier League clubs, the final decision is a subject for his representatives and club.

“As a professional footballer, he cannot be selective. Moreover, he is happy at Wolves and has an excellent working relationship with the club.”

The imposing Iorfa won the just concluded Toulon Tournament with England in France.

Interestingly, he emerged as Wolves’ Best Young Professional for the second year running during the club’s End-of-Season Awards held in May. (
