Mikel backs move for Moses

Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel has given his approval to the club’s attempts to sign his Nigerian teammate Victor Moses from Wigan.
Mikel is convinced the 21-year-
old could be a star at Stamford
Bridge having worked alongside
the highly-rated Latics winger on
the international stage.
The Blues have so far been
reluctantly to meet the £10m
asking price slapped on Moses’
head by Wigan chairman Dave
Whelan but reports are now
emerging suggesting a deal is
Chelsea would like to seal the
signing as quickly as possible,
and with the player in the final
year of his contract at the DW
Stadium, Whelan is ready to give
the former Crystal Palace
youngster the green light to join
the Champions League winners.
Mikel, who is excited about the
prospect of linking him with
Moses, told
“Victor Moses is a good player,
we all saw what he did last
“I will gladly welcome him and
make him feel at home if he
comes here. It would be a good
move for him and I am sure he
will make it big here.”
Meanwhile, Mikel is eyeing a
positive start to the season
beginning with Sunday’s
Community Shield clash against
Premier League holders
Manchester City at Villa Park.
“We will get it right and beat City.
I have won it before and I want
to win it again.”
