Victor Moses is open to the idea of returning to the Nigerian national team, according to a representative.

The Spartak Moscow player – who has also featured for Chelsea, Liverpool and Internazionale amongst others in his club career – made the shock decision to retire from international football after the 2018 World Cup in Russia. He was just 28 years of age at the time.

However, the winger is now ready to return to the Super Eagles fold, but is not desperate to revive his international career, according to sports agent Drew Uyi.

The agent is quoted by Vanguard as telling the Football Show on YouTube, “He will come back, but he’s not fussy about it. He could come for a year.

“He is a professional, he will always deliver. I remember I got him an endorsement around the time he quit the Super Eagles and because the deal was tied to the national team, they pulled the plug on it.”

Moses, who will turn 31 on Sunday, has registered two goals and four assists from 19 appearances across the Russian Super League and UEFA Europa League this season.

The Lagos-born player has represented Nigeria at two World Cups (2014 and 2018) and helped the Super Eagles win the 2013 AFCON in South Africa. He has 12 goals from 37 senior national team appearances.
