UPDATE: Prospective CanMNT midfielder Dominik Yankov capped by Bulgaria

Dominik Yankov will not be representing the Canadian men’s national team despite reportedly agreeing to join John Herdman’s ranks, after the 20-year-old Ludogorets Razgard midfielder accepted a call and suited up for Bulgaria in an official match against Hungary.

Yankov, who as our Gareth Wheeler reports had agreed to represent Canada and was in the process of filing an official change of association with FIFA, is now cap-tied to Bulgaria, having accepted a call from manager Georgi Dermendzhiev for upcoming UEFA EURO qualifiers against Hungary, Finland, and Wales.

Wheeler revealed more details about the negotiations between Yankov and Herdman on OneSoccer Hangouts with former FC Edmonton head coach Jeff Paulus:

Herdman will still look to add more dual-nationals to his ranks, however, as players such as Theo Corbeanu (Romania), Ferdi Kadioglu (Turkey), Omar Marmoush (Egypt), Ricardo Ferreira (Portugal), Martin Amuz (Uruguay), and Ayo Akinola of Toronto FC (United States or Nigeria) consider their own international futures.
