Victor Moses has left Chelsea for a 'bigger club' after securing a season-long loan deal with Liverpool, according to former Anfield star John Aldridge.
The Nigeria international joined Liverpool on transfer deadline day after it became clear that first-team opportunities would become be at a premium this season following Chelsea's activity over the summer months.
Chelsea added the likes of Willian and Andre Schurrle to their attacking ranks during the transfer period, while Kevin de Bruyne returned to the club, to provide Moses with an imposing path to the senior side.
Liverpool offered the 22-year-old more regular first-team action and manager Brendan Rodgers used his affable relationship with Chelsea counterpart Jose Mourinho to ensure Moses moved to Anfield.
Aldridge believes the capture of Moses is a shrewd piece of business by Liverpool, and claims the loan is a rarity after the player left an established club for one of even greater standing.
"Moses has actually gone out on loan to a bigger club which doesn’t happen often in football," Aldridge wrote in the North Wales Daily Post.
"I’m sure sitting and watching Liverpool beat Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday will have put fire in his belly.
"The Nigeria international will be relishing the prospect of pulling on the shirt and playing in that kind of atmosphere.
"Moses will fit in well with the way we play and I don’t think he will want to go back to Chelsea next summer."
