Victor Moses has retired from international football in order to focus on his club career at Chelsea.
The 27-year-old has called time on his Nigeria career after winning 37 caps for the Super Eagles. "I would like to announce that after much thought I have made the decision to retire from playing international football," Moses wrote on social media on Wednesday. "I have experienced some of the best moments of my life wearing the Super Eagles shirt and have memories with me that will last a lifetime. Nothing will ever compete to what it felt like to represent Nigeria on behalf of our country. However I feel that now is the right time to step away in order to be able to focus fully on club career and my young family as well as to allow the next generation of Super Eagles stars the opportunity to step up and to flourish. We are blessed as a nation to have so many exciting young players coming through and now is their time. I have already spoken to the manager by telephone and would like to say thank you to him and his staff, the NFF and all of my teammates for all of their support over the years. Most importantly I would like to say thank you to the Nigerian people for believing in me and supporting me over the years. It's meant the world to me and my family and I will always be a proud Nigerian supporting the team. Thank you for the memories and good luck to the team for the future." #BlueIsTheColour#CFC#CFCFans#CFCFamily#CFCTillIDie#BPL#EPL#PremierLeague#PreSeason#CFCTour#Champions#ComeOnYouBlues#PremierLeagueChampions#ChelseaFC#COYB#KTBFFH#IfItsNotBlueItWillBe#CFCArmy#TheBlues#Chelsea_KTBFFH#ChelseaFans#ChelseaKWT#CFCNews#CFCTransfers#CFCTour#MaurizioSarri#Sarri#GianfrancoZola#VictorMoses
Chelsea are stepping up their efforts to appoint a successor to former technical director Michael Emenalo.
Granovskaia has been in sole charge of transfers and the club’s loanees over the past two transfer windows since Emenalo’s departure, having shelved the process to replace him.
Chelsea decided to prioritise their managerial situation and player trading ahead of replacing Emenalo with somebody who might need time to feel their way into the job.
Despite insisting he takes no interest in transfers, it is understood Sarri would like to work closely with whoever Chelsea appoint and may favour a candidate who speaks Italian if he gets any say over the matter.
But it remains to be seen whether or not Chelsea hire a like-for-like replacement for Emenalo or change the job specification, as Granovskaia will continue to take the lead over player transfer and contract negotiations.
Whatever their title, somebody is needed to help oversee and plan all the loans, while providing a link between the Academy, first-team and boardroom. Kenneth Omeruo became the 31st player to leave Chelsea on loan by joining Leganes for the season.

Tiemoue Bakayoko has spoken out on Instagram after his season-long loan move to AC Milan was confirmed. ‘Wishing my Chelsea family the best this season! #TILWEMEETAGAIN,’ the former Monaco man told his followers on Instagram. ‘AC Milan, thank you for believing in me and for all the support,’ Bakayoko wrote in a separate post.
CHELSEA fans believe Eden Hazard has dropped a big transfer hint on social media.
The Belgian has been the subject of major speculation this summer after appearing to hint at a Stamford Bridge exit while at the World Cup. However, time is running out for the Spanish giants to make a move with the European transfer window slamming shut at the end of the month.
And Chelsea supporters now believe Hazard's cryptic Twitter activity all-but confirms he will remain at the club beyond the summer.
The attacker took to the social media site yesterday to remove his 'header' photo of himself in a Belgium kit, replacing it with a new picture showing him donning the Chelsea captain's armband.
Blues fans were quick to spot the change to Hazard's profile and began to get excited.
Willian has confirmed there is "no chance" he would have stayed at Chelsea had Antonio Conte remained as manager.
Sky sources reported back in May that the Brazil forward wanted out of Stamford Bridge if the Italian stayed on, at a time when the previous manager was in limbo over his future. Manchester United and Barcelona were interested in Willian and the latter had three bids turned down.
