He played for Super Eagles squad under Late Coach Stephen Keshi that won the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in 2013 and may join 2019 edition.

Pinnick told BBC Sport

I have arranged to meet him and his agent in England. I believe the way Moses left the national team was unexpected and sudden,

I want to speak to him and make him understand how important it is to return.

“I’d love for us to get him back. We’ll see what will happen.”

Moses comes with a lot of experience and has won the Nations Cup by playing an important role,”

We have a talented young squad but he can make a significant contribution as an experienced player.

“It will be his decision at the end of the day, but even if he has to leave – then we have to honour him like England did with Wayne Rooney.

“I still believe he can change his mind and continue to wear the national colours with pride, that is what I will be hoping for when we meet.”
