Moses left the country of his birth aged 11 and played for England's junior sides right up to under-21 level but then appeared to have a change of heart and was selected for Nigeria's friendlies against Botswana and Zambia this month.

The 20-year-old did not, in fact, travel to join up with the senior side and his representative Tony Finnigan has suggested the lure of England may yet still tempt him to stick with his adopted nation.

"Let's be honest, if he got called up for the full England squad, could you see him turning it down? I couldn't,'' Finnigan told the Wigan Evening Post.

"It's Vic's choice at the end of the day and while Nigeria are only playing friendlies he's still able to commit to England.

"He can only do that if he's called up, though, and I'm not sure how many times Fabio Capello's been to Wigan recently.''
