After moving from one club to another, Chelsea winger transfers to the Russian club Spartak Moscow on a loan deal.

Chelsea confirmed the transfer of Victor Moses to Spartak Moscow for the season 2020-21 on Thursday.

The 29-year-old did not get a chance to feature at Stamford Bridge in the last few campaigns. Consequently, he spent his spell at different clubs on loan moves.

And once again, Moses moves to another club. Subsequently, the Chelsea winger will fly to the Russian club on a loan agreement until the end of the season. Moreover, the deal also includes a purchase option.

“Victor Moses has joined Spartak Moscow on loan for the remainder of the 2020/21 campaign,” Chelsea revealed in a statement published on the club’s official website

Yet another loan deal.

The Russian side played 10 matches already in their league. In addition, the club stands second in the table behind rivals CSKA Moscow.

“Spartak also confirmed the move, writing on the club’s Twitter page: “Victor Moses is a Spartak player!

“Spartak Moscow and Chelsea have agreed on 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! Welcome, Victor!”

Moses signed to Chelsea in 2012 from Wigan. Though, his career started with Crystal Palace as a youngster.

The Nigerian had a stable run in the first team under boss Antonio Conte from 2016 to 2018. Evidently, Moses played regularly at Stamford Bridge and also lifted the Premier League title in the season 2016-17.

Although, after the departure of Conte, Maurizio Sarri did not include him on the list. Therefore, Moses left for Fenerbahce in January 2019.

Furthermore, the Chelsea man moved to Inter Milan earlier this season after playing in Turkey for a while.

Whereas, Moses made 37 appearances for Nigeria before retiring from national duty after the 2018 World Cup. He netted 12 goals for his country while helping Nigeria win the 2013 African Cup of Nations.
