Victor Moses leaves Chelsea on Loan


Nigerian winger Victor Moses has completed a season-long loan move to Russian topflight side Spartak Moscow.

The Red-Whites are currently second on the log with 21 points – same as Zenit Saint Petersburg after 10 rounds of games.

The move follows spells for Moses in Turkey and Italy last season, firstly at Fenerbahce and then at Inter Milan, who he represented in the Europa League final.

He switched to the Serie A side 12 months later, where he linked up once again with Antonio Conte, with whom he had won the Premier League title and FA Cup at Chelsea.
