Chelsea Include Moses, Six Players Of Nigerians In Premier League List

Chelsea have submitted their squad list for the first half of the 2017-2018 campaign to the Premier League following the close of the summer transfer window on Thursday night.

Seven players of Nigerian descent, including in-form Nigeria international Victor Moses, were included on Antonio Conte’s roster.

However, four of these players can't play for the Premier League champions as they have been loaned out to other English clubs.

The loanees include Ola Aina (Hull City), Tammy Abraham (Swansea City), Ike Ugbo (Barnsley) and Fikayo Tomori (Hull City).

Chelsea youth-teamers Tariq Uwakwe and Ayotomiwa Akinjogbin are eligible to feature in the Premier League.

Moses counted as a Home Grown Player (HGP), while the remaining Nigerian players are on the U21 list.
