Eagles' up and coming striker, Victor Moses disclosed that if he had to leave Wigan Athletic in the summer, it has be to a bigger English premier league club with a big fan base in Nigeria.

Moses is been sought after by West Ham, Sunderland, Newcastle, Everton and Liverpool after a bubbling performance that helped Wigan to avoid the drop at the end of the just concluded season.

"For now I don't know where I will be heading.

"But if I have to move it will be to a big club with lots of Nigerian fans," said the young player.

However, by this afternoon Moses will probably set his sights on Liverpool, which has a reasonable following in Nigeria. This is because his manager at Wigan, Roberto Martinez will find out today if Liverpool will sign him on.

It is believed that Martinez who has been in talks with Liverpool might influence the choice of Moses if he eventually takes over from sacked Kenny Dalglish.

Speaking on his adventure with the Super Eagles, Moses who will play his second game for Nigeria against Namibia on Sunday declared that he has had no regrets switching allegiance after playing for the English under-20 team.
