Baggies boss confirms interest in Chelsea backup winger.
West Brom manager Steve Clarke has admitted he may look into bringing Victor Moses to the club on loan from Chelsea, according to the Birmingham Mail.
The 22-year-old is likely to be available after failing to establish himself in the Blues’ first team last season, and with the arrival of further new signings in his position throughout this summer.
His situation at Stamford Bridge has seen the likes of Liverpool and Southampton show an interest in taking him on loan for a season, and West Brom could now join the chase for the Nigerian’s signature.
Clarke has utilised the loan market well in his time at the Hawthorns, bringing in another youngster from Chelsea last season in Romelu Lukaku, and snapping up Scott Sinclair on loan from Manchester City and Matej Vydra from Udinese this year.
Asked if he could move for Lukaku again, Clarke said he felt it wouldn’t be possible, but that Moses could be a realistic option.
“Lukaku? I don’t think so,” the manager said. “I’ve not spoken to anyone recently about Lukaku but I exchanged text messages with Jose about three or four weeks ago.
“He said Lukaku definitely won’t be going out and I think he’s right.
“Moses is available to come out and he’s a player we would be interested in.”
Moses earned his move to Chelsea after an impressive spell with former club Wigan, and will be keen to take the opportunity to get his career back on track with some regular first-team football.
