Merseysiders had hoped to persuade the Blues to loan them England left-back Bertrand this month.
Liverpool are planning on bringing Chelsea wide man Victor Moses’s season-long loan to a premature end after the Nigerian’s disappointing displays for the Reds so far in this campaign, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
The Merseyside giants agreed a deal with the west London club to take Moses on loan for the entire season back on transfer deadline day in September, with the Blues only agreeing to allow the winger to join one of their title rivals if they were guaranteed that Moses would be given valuable game time during his spell at Anfield.
However, in the past few days word has started to come out of Stamford Bridge indicating the Blues’ own current unhappiness with how the Nigeria international has been handled so far by Liverpool, with the Uefa Europa League holders even reportedly threatening to pull the plug on Brendan Rodgers’s planned loan swoop for Chelsea left-back Ryan Bertrand as a result.
And now it appears as though the Northern Irishman is set to get his retaliation in first by cutting short Moses’s time on Merseyside by sending the 23-year-old back to the capital after just six Premier League starts for the Reds since September.
