Police said he is now in a “non-life threatening” condition.

Officers from the Homicide and Major Crime Command are investigating and there have so far been no arrests.

Tributes have poured in across social media for Moses, with many saying he was an extremely talented footballer and a caring man who would put anyone at ease.

A fundraising page has also been set up to raise money for his funeral.

“Moses has a clean heart and he always showed us a lot of love.

“His life was cut short but we want his name to live on forever. We want to celebrate his life, his birthday, and give him the send off he deserves.”
