Victor Moses has spent most of the international break recovering from a groin injury, which isn't the greatest news, but he's spent most of the season being excellent, which is pretty great news as far as he and Stoke City are concerned.  In fact, Stoke City chairman Peter Coates recently expressed his interest in retaining the Chelsea loanee's services beyond this season. That's sure to make his manager happy, who expressed similar sentiments not too long ago.

"There are some obvious things we want to do [this summer]. [...] Victor Moses is an interesting [situation] for us, would like to see how the land lies with that one."

"If we can, we would like to do a deal."

Considering that Moses has only two years left on his current contract, presumably this would have to be a permanent deal instead of another loan.  While at the moment any potential deal here looks like a no-brainer, one thing that could work against it is the recent revelation that Mourinho tried to recall the winger in the January transfer window.  Moses did say no to that.  He probably won't say no to Stoke.  So we'll just have to work out a decent price.
