Nigerian international, Victor Moses, has completed a season-long loan move to West Ham thus ending speculations that he could be joining another London club, Tottenham Hotspurs.
The 24-year-old was winger is deemed a surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge and Jose Mourinho has sanctioned Moses to go out on loan yet again same way he did in the last two seasons at Liverpool and Stoke City.
Confirming the deal on Tuesday morning, West Ham in a statement on its official website wrote, “West Ham United are delighted to announce that Chelsea winger Victor Moses has signed for the Club on a season-long loan.”
Moses grew up in south London and he began his football career with Crystal Palace, making his debut aged just 16 in November 2007.
He has since then played for clubs like Wigan Athletics before heading to Chelsea.
The fleet-footed forward made 43 appearances in his first season with the Chelsea, scoring 10 goals – including four in the Club’s successful UEFA Europa League campaign.
However, he was on loan to Liverpool the next campaign and played 22 games for the Reds, before another loan and 23 appearances followed at Stoke City last term.
Aside Moses, the Nigerian duo of Taiwo Awoniyi and Brown Ideye have also been involved in late transfer moves.
While Awoniyi was snapped up by Liverpool before being sent out on loan to Frankfurt, Ideye has exited EPL side for Greek club Olympiakos.
