Abraham, who has also represented England at U18 and U19 level, was born in London but is also eligible to play for Nigeria through his father.
The Chelsea striker - currently on loan at Swansea - admits meeting Amaju Pinnick, the President of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), after the Swans' 0-0 draw with Tottenham at Wembley last weekend.
But Abraham has released a statement confirming he remains committed to England.
"Contrary to reports in the media today I would like to clarify that I have not agreed to switch my national team allegiance," said Abraham.
"I can confirm I met the President of the NFF after our last game against Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday given he is a friend of my father.
"However, any suggestion that I have made a decision to change my international representation is incorrect and wide of the mark.
"I have informed The FA that I remain available for selection for England."
