Premier League Block Burnley’s Attempt To sign Moses From Spartak Moscow

Burnley’s attempt to sign Victor Moses has been blocked by the Premier League, Completesports.com reports.

The Clarets, according to Sportsmail tried to lure the winger back to England from Russia, who are in midst of war with Ukraine

The Premier League rule that they will not accept any requests for new transfers due to concerns over the sporting integrity of the competition.

Italy’s Serie A and Germany’s Bundesliga have also prevented transfers for similar reasons, though Spain’s La Liga is allowing clubs to sign the players from the two leagues.

Moses, Spartak Moscow and Burnely were all open to the former Nigeria international returning to England.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February resulted in both the domestic leagues being suspended.

As a result, FIFA and UEFA made the joint decision to allow players from teams in Ukraine and Russia to join other European teams on short-term deals until the end of the season – even though the transfer window is shut.

    Moses the player with the X factor. Wished you were around yesterday to help us outclass Ghana with their basket mouth.

    I think it is time begin to critically tell ourselves the truth about certain overhyped players that we have… chief in this category are the likes of Samuel Chukwueze, Moses Simon and Kelechi Iheanacho… I believe it was clear yesterday that we cannot continue to field these players as senior first team guys… those three have enjoined more than due privilege in the Super Eagles at the expense of other more deserving players… they also hugely contributed to our below par performance in Cameroon… we will need Nwakaeme, Victor Moses and Obinna Nwobodo specifically if we make it past Ghana for the world cup proper… I would not mind dropping Chukwueze and Iheanacho out of the World Cup team. I cant see how Iheanacho is better player than Awoniyi, just like Chukwueze… they are just one dimensional unreliable players… they just did not have the level yesterday…

    • I was surprised for Kelechi lasting the whole 90mins on the pitch yesterday. Aribo should not have been subbed at all. I mentioned it here before, Eguavoen needs a new supporting striker and Aribo or Amoo will play that role better. Also, Chukwueze is too predictable and predicted he is going to fizzle out in soccer soon. Injury may have affected him but should have gotten it back. Etebo is an example of a good player, picked up immediately after a long spell with injury. A certain Babatunde that played the role in 2014 world cup would have benched Kelechi 24 times. I will even prefer Iwobi to play that role, not slow Kelechi that lose the ball on one touch when pressurized. Eguavoen should get the balls to bench Kelechi and Chukwueze and start Amoo and either Lookman or Dennis in the second leg. He should not care about Amuneke, which I think would prefer to play Chukwueze before he discovered him and they both use left leg.

      The attack at the nations cup was more deadly than the one that played on friday. Have said it time without number kelechi and chukuwueze needs to be benched. For me they both better off coming off the bench. The didn’t exist in that game, except for some few chances that kelechi created. I had expected we would come out all attacking and have the defenders on there toes all day. Honestly the pressure is on us now. Any mistake by the defense would be suicidal. Lets remember when we played south Africa in akwa ibom.All the best to te eagles any ways

  • To add, Iheanacho was the reason why Awoniyi could not rain goals at the last nations cup though he also lost some few chances. He can be too selfish at times and not releasing the ball quickly. We saw it with Osimhen, we need a player in that role that can drive the ball and have eye for good passes. Olayinka will even play the role better. We saw it in the last match against Tunisia when he was brought in

      Tribalism has killed CSN. Imagine comparing Olayinka with Kels. Fools like you don’t even watch the Czech league. Smh

      • This CSN is full of rif-raffs like this Bassey sha. What has fools or tribalism come to do with my analysis now. Did I abuse or call anyone fool here. Mumu, give me your analysis and don’t come and talk nonsense here.

  • Coache 2 years ago

    Iheanacho kept Partey at bay and that was why Partey did not join the attack. Bonke kept an eye on Kudus and Aina was excellent yesterday. The defenders did well and the wingers did not need to track back that much but they failed the team woefully.

    Substitutes were made when the Nigeria attack was beaming with confidence and removing Aribo killed the attack.

    • JimmyBall 2 years ago

      @Coache… is like Iheanacho is your brother. That guy was the worst player yesterday…

      • Coache 2 years ago

        @JimmyBall He is not my brother. I have criticized him before but he did a good job at keeping Partey at bay. Partey was concerned about him and could not try to join the attack. If not our midfield could have been over ran completely.

    Coaches without badges and teams. Leave the team selection to the Eagles Coaches, that’s what they are appointed to do. If the NFF wanted any of you to make the team selection, they would have appointed you guys.

    You can critique the team selection but at the end of the day Eguavouen and his crew call the shot and that is definitely not going to change today nor tomorrow.

  • Chukwueze shouldn’t start on Tuesday, dennis should take his place. The midfield should be made up of onyeka, aribo, etebo based on their performance in the first leg. Aribo should play behind osimhen not kelechi. Simon should start and lookman can come in later as he is still adjusting to African style of football. The same applies to bassey and zaidu.
    But I subscribe to the idea of bringing in more midfielders in the mould of nwobodo, alhassan, Raphael etc I think they will fit into the team very well if given the chance. Raphael with his imposing figure and long ball distribution, alhassan with his workaholic nature and good ball winning skills, nwobodo with his skilful ability. I can see all three of them starting a game if they are well integrated into the team. Their combination may be what the needs.
