Ex-Nigeria international Victor Moses joins Fenerbahçe on loan

Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses has joined Fenerbahçe on an 18-month loan.

The Nigerian, who announced his retirement from international football after the 2018 World Cup, has struggled for opportunities at Stamford Bridge since Maurizio Sarri took over from Antonio Conte.

On Friday, Moses signed for The Yellow Canaries on loan until the end of the 2020-21 season.

“We wish Victor, a popular member of the squad, all the best on his loan deal in Turkey,” a Chelsea statement read.

On his Twitter page, Moses said he was “delighted” to move to the Istanbul club.

He wrote: “Delighted to have joined @Fenerbahce 💯 A huge club with incredible fans and an amazing history 💪🏿 Can’t wait to get going! 🇹🇷.

“I’d also like to thank everyone at @ChelseaFC and I wish the team and the fans the very best for the future!”

Signed from Wigan Athletic in 2012, Moses, who was converted from a winger to wing-back under Conte, now embarks on a fourth loan from Chelsea, having had spells at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham.

After playing a key role in the 2016-17 league triumph, the 28-year-old was rewarded with a new contract in March 2017, which tied him to the club until June 30, 2021.

However, since Sarri replaced Conte as Chelsea boss, Moses has struggled for game time — with the former Napoli coach saying the 2013 AFCON winner was not suitable for his style of play.

Moses has made just one start and four substitute appearances this season. He has not featured since October.
