London 2012 finalist Okoye recently announced his plans to play in the NFL and impressed several clubs while on trial in America.

Allen spoke to the Voice of Sport about the attributes that Okoye brings to the gridiron, the disadvantages about being new to the sport and the long road that lies ahead for the Olympian.
