Former Nigeria international Victor Moses’ future with Russian giants Spartak Moscow will soon be decided.
The 30-year-old defender-cum-midfielder has excelled at Spartak while on loan from English giants Chelsea and the Red and Whites have an option to buy him permanently.
Spartak manager Dominico Tedesco praised Moses’ performances for the Red and Whites and he explained that the decision to trigger the player’s buyout option rests with the club’s financial authority.
“The buyout of Moses is the club’s business, I can’t give advice. I think his arrival was a very good decision, Victor helped us a lot,” Tedesco said on Goal.
“In some episodes, it is seen that this is a player of a different class. Today he played a great game, played well both attacking and defensively.”
Moses has played 17 matches in the Russian Premier League thus far – scoring three times and recording two assists in the process.
Prior to the current season, Moses was on the books of Inter Milan on loan from Chelsea and he played 12 matches in the Italia Serie A and registered three assists.
Moses was born in Nigeria, before moving to an early age and he represented the European country’s youth teams at under-16, under-17, under-19 and under-21 levels.
However, Moses opted to play for Nigeria as opposed to being fully capped for England. He made his debut for the Nigerian senior team in 2012 and earned 38 caps and scored 12 times before retiring from international matches in 2018.
He played in Nigeria’s winning campaign at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, as well as the campaign in the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
