Chelsea defender on his way to Russia after he missed out on Serie A move

Chelsea defender Victor Moses is looking to leave Chelsea within the next week. The Nigerian international has been told he does not feature in the plans of Frank Lampard and that he will be allowed to leave the club on a transfer or on loan. Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano believes that Moses is on his way to Russian giants Spartak Moscow.

Romano wrote on social media: “Victor Moses is set to leave Chelsea. He’s joining Spartak Moscow on loan – transfer window still open in Russia and Victor wants to play after Inter turned down the option of bringing him back.” It has been suggested that the Russians will be ready to sign Moses on a one-year loan with a possible buy-clause added into the loan deal.

The 29-year-old Moses joined Chelsea in 2012 in a transfer from Wigan Athletic. He has never been a first-team regular at Stamford Bridge apart from one single season under Antonio Conte. Under the Italian Moses played as a right wing-back and he was part of the team that won the Premier League. Last season Conte signed him at Internazionale but the Italians then decided against signing Moses on a permanent transfer.
