Abuja - The Nigeria Football Federation says it has been assured that coach Stephen Keshi will honor his two-year contract despite being named as a candidate to take charge of African champion Ivory Coast.

The NFF says Keshi, who signed a new contract in April, is "very happy" with his job in Nigeria.

Keshi was on a list of more than 50 candidates published recently by the Ivorian federation to take over from Frenchman Herve Renard.

The NFF says Keshi's manager, Emmanuel Addo, has given assurances that Keshi will stay for the duration of his contract.
