Nigeria’s Victor Moses has joined Spartak Moscow on loan for the remainder of the 2020/21 campaign.
The Russian side are 10 games into their league season and sit second in the table, level on points with city rivals CSKA Moscow.
Spartak Moscow and Chelsea have agreed the transfer of Nigerian star Victor Moses to our club. The loan agreement with the 29-year-old midfielder is until the end of the season with the option to buy!
The move follows spells for Moses in Turkey and Italy last season, firstly at Fenerbahce and then at Inter Milan, who he represented in the Europa League final.
The 29-year-old Moses first moved on loan to Fenerbahce in January 2019 and scored five times in 23 appearances during his year in Turkey.
He switched to the Serie A side 12 months later, where he linked up once again with Antonio Conte, with whom he had won the Premier League title and FA Cup at Chelsea.
Moses made seven starts and 13 sub appearances, one of those off the bench coming in that Europa League final, which was narrowly lost to Sevilla.
Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, had stated that Moses was not part of his first-team plans for the 2020-21 season.
