Ahead of the two sides’ meeting in the Premier League on Saturday, the Daily Mirror has reported that Stoke City want to make Victor Moses’ loan move from Chelsea permanent at the end of the season.
The Potters will offer around £5m for the winger. If the transfer does go through, the Blues will make a loss on the 24-year-old, having signed him for £9m in 2012 from Wigan Athletic.
The Nigerian international has impressed for Mark Hughes’s side so far this term, making eighteen appearances in the Premier League, bagging three goals and getting three assists along the way. His performances have been a contributing factor to the club’s safe top-half position.
In contrast, he has struggled to make an impression at his parent club, starting only twelve league games in the three years since his move. Nevertheless, according to the Telegraph, Jose Mourinho made an attempt to bring the former Crystal Palace trainee back to Stamford Bridge in January.
The fact that Moses turned down the opportunity to go back to the league leaders suggests that he may be keen on a permanent switch to the Britannia, if an offer does materialise.
