Liverpool's new loan signing Victor Moses insists that his move from Chelsea had to be made, amid fears that his career could stagnate on the bench at Stamford Bridge.
Moses arrived at Anfield on deadline day on a season-long loan from Jose Mourinho's men after seeing new attacking midfield options including Willian, Andre Schurrle and Kevin De Bruyne, move above him in the Chelsea pecking order.
The Nigerian international made the move to West London from Wigan last summer for a reported £9m fee but struggled to hold down a regular spot in the first-team, despite some impressive cameos in the run to the Europa League title.
Moses, who can play as a striker or on the wing, started only 12 times for the club in the Premier League last season and has spoken of his need to have regular first-team football.
"As a young footballer coming up, I just want to play games," said Moses.
"Not playing can really damage your career.
"Liverpool is a massive club and I just want to enjoy my football and try to help my team-mates."
Liverpool's signing of Moses came on a busy deadline day for the club, with Mamadou Sakho and Tiago Ilori also joining for a combined fee of £25m from PSG and Sporting Lisbon, respectively.
