Bayer Leverkusen’s Bailey ends England speculation by accepting Jamaica call-up – football news

Bayer Leverkusen forward Leon Bailey has ended speculation about his international future by accepting a call-up to the Jamaica squad.

There had been suggestions that the 20-year-old was holding out for a call-up by England, but Bailey has pledged his allegiance to Jamaica and looks set to feature in their clash with Bonaire.

Earlier this year, Bailey’s adopted father Craig Butler had fuelled rumours that he would opt for either Germany or England , telling GBP Sports : “Leon and his brother have received invitations to join Jamaica’s national team. I love my country and so do my boys. Unfortunately, my sons both declined the offer at this time.

“Leon and Kyle have British ancestry, Portuguese ancestry, have lived in Belgium and, in a few years, were Leon to stay in Germany, he too would qualify for Germany.

“Each day that goes by it’s another day he could qualify for another country if he chooses. It shows him as a man of substance and a leader; not a fool that runs and bows at the hands of people who have been corrupted by the economic restraints they face.”

However, it has since come to light that the Kingston-born Bailey was never eligible for the Three Lions, as he does not have a biological parent or grandparent who was born in England.

Bailey joined Bundesliga side Leverkusen from Genk in January 2017 and has scored 13 goals in 53 appearances for the club. He signed a new deal in August that will keep him at the BayArena until 2023.
