Victor Moses this morning completed a season-long loan deal that sees him join up with Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool.

Moses, 22, is out of favour with Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho and the arrivals of Willian and Andre Schurrle, alongside the return of Kevin De Bruyne, have limited his first-team opportunities further.

The Nigerian international watched on at Anfield on Sunday as Liverpool overcame rivals Manchester United courtesy of a Daniel Sturridge goal, another former Chelsea forward.

Speaking having completed his switch, Moses said: "First and foremost, I'm delighted to have made the loan from Chelsea to a big club like Liverpool. The most important thing is for me to be professional about it and I'm here to do a job for the club."

Moses went on to highlight the quality of the squad at Liverpool, and his belief is that the club are aiming high this season.

"The target is to get into the top four and for the club to compete in the Champions League - and I'm delighted to be here. There are a lot of quality players here, they're winning games and creating chances. It's a massive thing for me to be here," he concluded.

Moses' arrival sees him become Liverpool's eighth new face, and their third deadline day arrival following Tiago Illori and Mamadou Sakho's moves from Sporting Lisbon and Paris Saint Germain respectively.

Rodgers has already signed Simon Mignolet, Kolo Toure, Luis Alberto, Iago Aspas and Aly Cissokho this summer, and the Reds now have a squad that could legitimately challenge for the top four this season.
