Victor Moses Signs Up For Fenerbahce Salvage Mission

Victor Moses Signs Up For Fenerbahce Salvage Mission
By Aaron Strain Updated

Victor Moses. Remember him?

The man that went into hiding when Maurizio Sarri arrived on English shores with his hedonistic ideas of a 4-4-2 formation, has suddenly reappeared - but he won't be sticking around long!

The Chelsea...are we calling him a winger? Wait. The Chelsea player. Has just put-pen-to-paper on a deal to join Turkish giants Fenerbahce for the next 18 months, after managing a grand total of 26 minutes in the Premier League this season. In fact, Moses has only featured once from the start all season, in the Blues 2-1 EFL Cup win over former stopover Liverpool, way back on September 26th.

The Nigerian became an unlikely focal point in Antonio Conte's title winning side of 2016/17, reinventing himself as a marauding wing-back in the fiery Italian's 3-5-2 setup. Prior to that, he had become the quintessential Chelsea loan-fodder, spending time on the lend at Anfield, Stoke and West Ham, before excelling in his new role.

And now he's cleared his Stamford Bridge locker for a fourth time, with Istanbul on the horizon.

The Sarı Kanaryalar have been enduring a rough ride this season, and sit 15th in the Turkish Superliga, treading water above the relegation zone with goal difference as their only buoy.

Having finished runner-up to Galatasaray last season, Fener have only managed three wins this season, and got rid of Philip Cocu in October after the inauspicious start. They turned to Ersun Yanal just before Christmas, and despite being knocked out of the Turkish Cup yesterday, the former Trabzonspor supremo has at least managed to remain unbeaten in the league - three games, three draws.

Moses will be teaming up again with former Liverpool centre-half Martin Škrtel, with Premier League flops Islam Slimani, Roberto Soldado and Andre Ayew all competing for the forward positions. Potent!

Moses' contract at the Bridge runs out at the end of next season.
