Victor Moses joins Stoke City on loan

Published Add your comment

Chelsea winger Victor Moses has left the club on loan once again, joining Stoke City on the opening day of the Premier League season.

The Nigerian winger moved to west London from Wigan Athletic back in the summer of 2012, and despite featuring semi-regularly, he left at the start of the following season for a spell at Liverpool on loan.

On the move again

He returned to Chelsea this summer following selection for the World Cup, but is once again on the move before a ball has even been kicked by the club.

It’s the Potters who, on this occasion, will benefit from Moses’ services, and Tony Scholes is delighted to bring the player to the Britannia Stadium.

"We are delighted to have secured the services of such an exciting young talent in Victor,” said the Stoke City chief executive.

"He will certainly add to our attacking options and from talking to him it's obvious that he's really excited about the prospect of making an impact in the Premier League with Stoke City.”

Mourinho wields axe again

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has wielded the axe on a number of players this summer, with Demba Ba, Samuel Eto’o, Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard among those to leave the club permanently. A number of others have also left on loan.

Replacements have arrived at Stamford Bridge however, with Cesc Fabregas, Diego Costa and Felipe Luis the big-name arrivals for the Blues.

And, with the likes of Eden Hazard and Willian fighting for places out wide, chances again looked to be in short supply for Moses at Chelsea once again, which explains why he’s left once again.

Chance to impress

Moses will hope to follow in the footsteps of other loanees - notably Thibaut Courtois - and impress Mourinho whilst away from the Blues.
