Moses signs on loan

West Ham United have completed the loan signing of Chelsea man Victor Moses

West Ham United are delighted to announce that Chelsea winger Victor Moses has signed for the Club on a season-long loan.

Moses, 24, makes the move across London to link up with the Hammers on Tuesday’s transfer deadline.

The 5’10 creator has spent the last two seasons on loan at Liverpool and Stoke City and is delighted to have made the switch to the Boleyn Ground.

Moses said: “I am very pleased to have joined West Ham. They are a great Club and the atmosphere here is amazing with the fans.

"I want to add my quality to what West Ham already have and hopefuly we can do even better than last season. I am very pleased to work under the new manager.

"There is a huge amount of talent with Alex Song and Nikica Jelavic joining the Club and I want to help the Club finish as high up in the table as possible.

"Andy Carroll is a great striker and has a lot of experience in the Premier League. All the forwards have got a lot of experience and I want to help them score more goals.”

Born in Kaduna, Nigeria, Moses grew up in south London and began his football career with Crystal Palace, making his debut aged just 16 in November 2007.

He immediately became a regular in the Palace side and played 69 games for the Eagles in all competitions before completing a £2.5m move to then-Premier League team Wigan Athletic in January 2010..             

His rapid progress continued at the DW Stadium, where he spent two full seasons and made 74 top flight appearances.

Moses’ form attracted the interest of Chelsea, who brought him back to London in August 2012. He made 43 appearances in his first season with the Blues, scoring ten goals – including four in the Club’s successful UEFA Europa League campaign.

However, he was loaned to Liverpool early the next campaign and played 22 games for the Reds, before another loan and 23 appearances followed at Stoke City last term.

On the international stage, Moses turned out for England up to U21 level, but chose to pledge his allegiance to Nigeria in 2011, since going on to feature in his country’s victorious 2013 Africa Cup of Nations campaign and the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
