After six loans since his arrival at Chelsea in 2012, Victor Moses leaves the Blues permanently to join Russia.
Chelsea have confirmed that winger Victor Moses has made a definitive commitment to Spartak Moscow, ending nine seasons in the Blues jersey.
The 30-year-old winger joined the Premier League club from Wigan in 2012, but hasn’t played for them since October 2018, having been on loan several times over the years.
Moses’ last game for Chelsea dates back to the 2018-19 season, when he came on in the second half in a 3-1 Europa League win over BATE Borisov.
Much of the current Blues squad was in attendance that day in October 2018, with players like Kepa Arrizabalaga, Emerson, Mateo Kovacic, Olivier Giroud, N’Golo Kante and Callum Hudson-Odoi all present during the 90 minutes.
Indeed, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who is expected to return to Stamford Bridge after being loaned to Fulham last season, scored a hat-trick in that game, although it remains to be seen if he has a long-term future at the club under the orders of Thomas Tuchel.
In total, Moses made 128 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea, scoring 18 goals. He also won the Premier League, FA Cup and two Europa Leagues during his time with the Blues.
Much of those nine seasons have been spent on loan, with the former Nigeria international having made six temporary stays away from Stamford Bridge since 2013.
The first of those loans saw him join Liverpool for the 2013-14 season, where he made 22 appearances and scored two goals, most notably on his debut for the Reds.
He spent the 2014-15 campaign on loan with Stoke City, before a transfer to West Ham, London rivals Chelsea, where he remained for the 2015-16 season.
Moses ‘last Premier League game came in the Hammers’ 2-1 loss to Stoke in May 2016. The winger then decided to move to Turkey to join Fenerbahçe, where he stayed for two seasons.
He then moved to Inter, where he teamed up with former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte in Italy, but left in 2020, this time for Spartak Moscow, in the Russian Premier League, where he s ‘is now definitely engaged.
