Victor Moses joins Spartak Moscow on loan
Ex-Nigeria international Victor Moses has joined Spartak Moscow on loan from Chelsea with an option to buy.
Moses signed a season-long loan deal with the Russian side and he’s expected to land Moscow in coming days.
“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 club statement read.
Speaking after his announcement, he said: “It’s a great pleasure for me to sign for Spartak, the greatest club in Europe, I can’t wait to get started with my teammates. It’s going to be an interesting season.”
The 29-year-old winger joined Chelsea from Wigan in 2012 and his recent move will be his sixth loan spell outside the Stamford Bridge outfits. He is expected to, this time, be deployed at right-back for Spartak and help them achieve their title aspirations.
Before his move to Turkey, he was a first-team regular at Stamford Bridge under Antonio Conte in a team that won a Premier League title and FA Cup in the 2016/17 & 2017/18 season respectively.
Moses, who featured 37 times for the Super Eagles, was a key member of the Nigerian team which lifted the African Cup of Nations in 2013.
