Since Sunday Oliseh resigned in February, Samson Siasia has been the interim coach.

Pinnick has now said he has concluded plans to appoint an expatriate, whose salaries will be footed by a private company.

“We’re going to get a foreign manager for the team,” he is quoted by Vanguard newspaper.

“And we are going to ensure that Nigeria qualify for the World Cup and do exceedingly well, too.

"We’ll make them utilise all FIFA windows to play quality friendly matches.”

One of the reasons why Oliseh resigned was because of unpaid salaries but Pinnick has assured that the foreign coach will be paid.

“There is nothing to worry about the payment of salary for the foreign manager,” NFF boss further added.

“His wages are going to be taken care of by the private sector. We’ve concluded that and it will not cost government anything.”

Former Cameroon coach Paul Le Guen and Claude Le Roy have been reported to be in the running for the Super Eagles.
