Deji Sotona being linked with a move to a European club. 

Has he ever played for any official Ireland underage team?
Don't think he was involved in the U17's last year, or was he?


Update - researched and answered me own question...I rock!
https://www.fai.ie/ireland/news/u17-euro-ireland-squad-announced-for-tournament

So no, no sign of him there.

Is he any good?
He’s a decent player in the United set up which would I guess make him a bigger talent from an Irish perspective. Absolutely rapid, clocked as the fastest player at United. Impressed early in the season mainly coming off the bench for the u18s and started earning some starts towards the second half of the season. He isn’t one of the main big talents. More in that next group level where they are good players for top academies but you wouldn’t expect them to make it there.

Like Odubeko before him, he's not happy for some reason and is likely to leave despite being highly rated by some first team players. Odubeko has been doing well at West Ham since he went there, rattling in the goals and being tipped for the first team if he continues to develop but the same was said of Tony Scully before he was transferred to Lincoln City. Sotona is a flying machine and may make the big time but very difficult to predict the future for these young players.
