Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has made a move for Chelsea outcast Victor Moses this week. Lambert is keen to sign Moses on loan for the season and is waiting for a response from Jose Mourinho who is currently in Slovenia with the Blues. Moses, 23, will be allowed out for another season despite his struggles at Liverpool and Lambert is keen to offer him a fresh start in the West Midlands as he bids to further strengthen his squad.
The Nigerian international was a member of the Super Eagles squad to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil where the African champions crashed out in the second round of the tournament to France.
Moses struggled to find his form at the World Cup despite being one of Nigeria’s biggest names, but he is still very much in demand.
However, it is clear that Mourinho does not rate the Nigerian and Moses is most probably on his way out of Stamford Bridge.
Meanwhile, Baggies boss Alan Irvine will no doubt hope the possibility of linking up with fellow Nigerian striker Victor Anichebe at the Hawthorns would appeal to Moses having made a move for the former Crystal Palace and Wigan winger.
