Chelsea winger Victor Moses has signed a new four year contract with the club before joining West Ham on a season long loan.
The Nigerian international signed for the defending Premier League champions for £9 million from Wigan Athletic in 2012, making 43 appearances and scoring 10 goals. He then spent the 2013 – 2014 season on loan at Liverpool and the 2014 – 2015 season on loan at Stoke City. He returned to Stamford Bridge in the summer hoping that he’d be able to break into the first team.
The Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has rewarded Moses with a new four year contract, despite the fact that the forward player has only made one appearance under the Portuguese manager and that came as a second half substitute during Chelsea’s 1-0 loss to Arsenal in the Community Shield last month.
Having signed his new contract that will keep him at the club until 2019, Moses then immediately agreed a deal to join Slaven Bilic’s West Ham on a season long loan. He’ll be hopeful of gaining some first team football at The Boleyn Ground in order to force his way in to Jose Mourinho’s plans next season.
