Victor Moses set to join Stoke on loan

Victor Moses looks set to join Stoke City soon, with Chelsea seemingly content to see him depart Stamford Bridge once again this summer.

This information comes directly from the well-connected and extremely reliable figure of John Percy, who tweeted the latest on Moses' situation during the course of Friday evening.

"Stoke are set to sign Chelsea winger Victor Moses on loan. Medical scheduled for tmrw morning. #scfc #cfc," the Daily Telegraph's Midlands football reporter informed his followers.

No surprises

Such a move would hardly come as a surprise to Chelsea supporters, despite recent whispers that Jose Mourinho may have experienced an abrupt change of heart with regard to Moses' future.

Although hopes were initially rather high that the quick and powerful 23-year-old would be able to have a significant impact at Stamford Bridge following his move from Wigan Athletic in 2012, in truth Moses has never really appeared likely to make the grade at Chelsea.

After making 23 appearances for the Blues during the course of the 2012/13 campaign, the Nigerian international - who switched allegiances to play for the Super Eagles in 2011 and represented the country at the recent World Cup in Brazil - spent the whole of last season on loan at rivals Liverpool.

Unfortunately for Moses, his impact during an extremely eventful time at Anfield was minimal and he returned to Chelsea this summer presumably seeking confirmation as to whether or not he was to form any part of Mourinho's plans moving forward.

Stoke benefits

While Liverpool's surprising success last year may well have hampered Moses' opportunity to nail down a regular starting berth, a club like Stoke would appear to offer him the chance to thrive.

Unlikely to feature particularly prominently in the race for European qualification, the Potters remain a very credible Premier League outfit who are progressing from strength-to-strength under the guidance of Mark Hughes.

Stoke finished ninth in the top-flight last season and some impressive transfer business - including deals for former Barcelona starlet Bojan and midfielder Steve Sidwell - conducted this summer should help them to repeat that top-half finish.

Quite how this deal impacts upon Hughes' protracted pursuit of Oussama Assaidi remains to be seen. Liverpool's Moroccan playmaker flourished during a loan spell at the Britannia Stadium in 2013/14, yet Stoke have been unable to bring him to the club on a full-time basis as of yet.

Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond is another potential transfer candidate for Hughes, who is remaining patient for the moment.
