Former Stoke City captain, Danny Higginbotham has urged Mark Hughes to make the permanent signing of Super Eagles winger cum striker, Victor Moses top of his number one summer plans.
Moses was in fine form Wednesday night,scoring once to propel Stoke to a 2-0 defeat of Everton and Higginbotham believes the Nigerian has been Stoke’s best player this season.
“I have to admit I was a bit surprised when I learned that Victor Moses scored with his head for Stoke’s first.
Then again, I’ve been saying for some time that he’s Stoke’s most important player because their game relies so much on the energy and pace he brings.
And if he can head the ball too, all well and good.
The only problem is that his fine form can only increase his market value when Stoke come to try and sign him from Chelsea in the summer.
He has to be Stoke’s number one target and they simply have to be prepared to fork out a figure likely to be somewhere between £8m and £10m.
A second season on loan is always an option, but I don’t think that will appeal to Moses himself.
Players do want some stability in their lives and a long-term contract will do that for him.
It’s obvious he’s happy wearing a Stoke shirt when you see his form out in the middle.
And I know from personal experience that Stoke is the kind of club a footballer wants to play for.”
