Moses joins Inter Milan on loan

Victor Moses has joined Inter Milan from Chelsea on loan with an option to buy, the Italian club announced on Thursday.

The Nigeria winger is teaming up with his former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

The 29-year old had been on loan at Turkish club Fenerbahce, featuring 22 times before injury sidelined since the end of November.

Moses looks to resuscitate his career in Serie A. He is in the Italian club with Manchester United defender Ashley Young and former Chlsea striker Romelu Lukaku. It was indeed Lukaku who made the world aware the deal had been concluded when he posted photo of the team at dinner on Wednesday which included the Nigerian.

“It’s an honour for me to be here and be an Inter player. I’d like to thank everyone for the welcome I’ve been given, I can’t wait to start,” Moses said on Inter TV.

“Having the opportunity to work with the coach again is something I’m really happy about,” said Moses.

“I have spoken to him and he has already explained the club’s project to me. I want to be part of it, I’m happy to be here.

“I’ll give my all and want to help the team. There’s a lot of quality here, I want to make my contribution out on the pitch and enjoy myself. That’s the most important thing.”

Moses then added on his Twitter account: “It is an honour to have signed for one of the biggest clubs in the world and I can’t wait to get started at Inter!

“The opportunity to join such a prestigious club with such an incredible history was something I felt I had to take and I can’t wait to now join my team-mates and get started.”

The Chelsea approval statement suggested it was only a short term deal.

 The club wrote: “Victor Moses will spend the remainder of the 2019/20 season on loan at Inter Milan having returned to Chelsea from his temporary spell in Turkey with Fenerbahce,”

Moses – who also had loan spells in England at Liverpool, Stoke, and West Ham – joins an Inter team which is currently second in Serie A, just two points behind leaders Juventus.
