Inter Milan sign Victor Moses on loan

Victor Moses

Victor Moses has been reunited with manager Antonio Conte after signing a loan deal with Inter Milan until the end of the season.
The anticipated move from Chelsea was confirmed on Thursday afternoon by the high-flying Italian side.
The 29-year-old has joined on loan for the rest of the campaign with a view to making the deal permanent for £8.5 million in the summer.
“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,” Moses said.
“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.”
The wing-back had initially arrived in the city on Monday night, having cut short his 18-month loan spell at Turkish side Fenerbahce.
Videos of Moses in Milan surfaced on social media on Tuesday morning as he underwent a medical with the San Siro outfit.
On Wednesday, Inter striker Romelu Lukaku posted an Instagram photo of the squad going out for dinner, which included Moses in it.
This was another indicator that the move was close as he was still yet to formally join the club.
The Nigerian sits opposite Lukaku as he smiles and appears to be bedding into his new surroundings already, as the former United striker wrote: “My brothers, My boys, My Friends, My team-mates @Inter.”
Moses is currently deemed surplus to requirements at Chelsea and had spent the past 12 months plying his trade with Fenerbahce.
However, he is now reunited with Conte at Inter after playing a key role in the Italian’s 2016-17 Premier League title triumph while in charge of Chelsea.
He featured 34 times in the league that term, scoring three times.
Overall the pair worked together at Stamford Bridge for two seasons before Conte was sacked just two months after the end of the 2017-18 campaign.
The last season saw them win the FA Cup too.
Conte will be hoping the arrival of Moses can aid Inter’s title challenge as they look to usurp Juventus as champions of Italy.
Juve (51 points) currently sit four points clear of second-placed Inter (47 points) after 20 matches apiece.
