Crystal Palace Lead Race To Sign Former Boy Moses

Crystal Palace are reportedly interested in signing £12million rated retired Nigeria international Victor Moses from Chelsea.

Moses played for Crystal Palace between 2007 and 2010 after coming through their youth ranks, and the Chelsea winger is back on the club’s radar, according to The Sun.


The 27-year-old has struggled for game time under Maurizio Sarri this season, making only one start in six appearances for Chelsea this season in all competitions.

Moses who fell out of favour at Stamford Bridge under Sarri after playing regularly under former manager Antonio Conte has seen only 26 minutes of English Premier League action so far this term.

He played in 40 matches as Chelsea lifted the Premier League title in the 2016-17 campaign, while he made 38 appearances last season.

The former Super Eagles star, joined Chelsea for £9m from Wigan in the summer of 2012 and has enjoyed three loan spells at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham during his time at the club.

Moses retired from international football after featuring for the Super Eagles at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia where he played in all three group games and scored once.

  • The best of Victor Moses is yet to come.

    Once he finds a club to call home, he should be able to enjoy his football and perhaps have a more prolonged career now that he no longer has the baggage of international football weighing him down.

    My suggestion would be to take a leaf of former England international James Milner whose early retirement From international football has helped prolong his club career.

    Think about it, James Milner was in the same age group of Wayne Rooney.

    Both in their early thirties, Wayne is playing in the retirement Major league Soccer (United States) whilst James is still playing at the highest level in the best team in the world contending for champions league and premiership title.

    Moses served Nigeria with distinction and his early retirement has brought 2 benefits: 1) time for him to focus on his club career 2) fresh and hungrier talents (like Kalu and Chukwu) to be discovered and blooded into the main Super Eagles team.

    His early retirement is a win win as far as I am concerned: win for him and win for the Super Eagles.

    I now have my sights set on how he will perform in his new club and how the Super Eagles will perform without him.

    Life goes on…..

  • A return to Crystal Palace from whence he first started, seems like a natural fit. On the right of the field we have Andros Townsend who is very experienced and talented ahead of the right back and right of midfield. Moses should be able to wrestle a starting spot from James McArthur it’ll however, depend on the formation that the manager decides to play.

    The other question is “will Crystal palace pay the £12 million asking price and his wages or is there wriggle room”?
