Victor Moses completes loan transfer from Chelsea to Turkish strugglers Fenerbahce

January 26, 2019

Moses has signed an 18-month loan deal with the Turkish strugglers after being frozen out at Stamford Bridge this season.

The 28-year-old had played a major role for Chelsea under previous manager Antonio Conte helping them to Premier League and FA Cup success.

But the former Crystal Palace and Wigan star found himself a long way out of the first team picture once Sarri took charge in the summer and conceded his days at the club were numbered.

Now he has turned his back on the chance to stay in the top flight in England to try his luck in Turkey.

Fenerbahce are enduring a miserable season which has seen one of the biggest clubs in the country struggle near the foot of the division.

They are currently fourth from bottom, two points clear of Rizespor and badly in need of putting together a run that would see them climb up the table.

Moses has taken up the offer to spend the remainder of the current campaign and the whole of next season on loan there.

The player had been chased by other teams in England, with former club Palace showing an interest as well as Cardiff.

But none came up with the kind of offer which tempted him to chance his arm overseas for the first time in his career.

Moses officially spent six-and-a-half years as a Chelsea player, but this move is the fourth loan of his time with the London club.

He spent a season on loan at Liverpool, then Stoke and finally West Ham before eventually establishing himself as a regular under Conte operating as wing-back.

His departure is the first of the senior players Sarri inherited to be moved on as the Italian looks to make changes to his squad.

Alvaro Morata is in talks with Atletico Madrid over a possible loan move after admitting he wants to quit the club last month.

Defender Gary Cahill is looking to secure a move away this month while Danny Drinkwater is another to have been made available.
