I want to play at the high­est level I can, says Palace teen

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FOOTBALL -

HOT PROP­ERTY Vic­tor Moses ad­mits he can’t wait for his crack at the big time as his in­evitable Crys­tal Palace exit draws closer.

The Eng­land Un­der-19 in­ter­na­tional is ex­pected to leave Sel­hurst Park in the next few days as Palace re­luc­tantly look to sell the for­ward to help ease their money wor­ries.

Moses’ stock rose fur­ther over last week­end af­ter he scored the win­ner in Palace’s 10 win at Ply­mouth and then col­lected the award for Cham­pi­onship Young Player of the Month for De­cem­ber.

Manch­ester City re­main favourites to sign the highly-rated whiz­zkid – but Span­ish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid have also ex­pressed an in­ter­est.

But the 19-year-old is re­fus­ing to let the in­creased spec­u­la­tion over his fu­ture ruin his form – though he ad­mits he craves a move to a big­ger club.

Moses said: “When I saw the Barcelona thing – Barcelona? All the way in Spain? But I just looked at it and thought to my­self, they’re a big club. What­ever hap­pens. I def­i­nitely want to play at the top.

“I just want to play at the high­est level I can. The higher you play the more ex­pe­ri­ence you get. If there is any chance for me to play at the high­est level there is no point in wait­ing, so I will go and grab it.

“Wher­ever I am I just want to keep on play­ing foot­ball and do­ing my best. I want to score goals and cre­ate goals for my team­mates.”– The Daily Mail

IN DE­MAND: Vic­tor Moses cel­e­brates his goal against Read­ing at the Made­jski Sta­dium in De­cem­ber. “I want to score goals,” he says.
