West Ham have released Victor Moses

Chelsea winger Victor Moses, since his big-time move to the Blues from Wigan Athletic, has spent the last four seasons playing for four different Premier League teams.  Combined with his 2+ seasons at Wigan, 25-year-ld Moses now has well over 150 Premier League appearances to his name.  And yet, after spending time and impressing fairly regularly at Chelsea, Liverpool, Stoke City, and most recently West Ham United, he can't quite manage to get settled anywhere.

Of course, part of that could be by design from Chelsea or by choice from Moses himself, but Stoke seemed ready to bid last year only for Moses to suffer an untimely injury.  He had a good run with West Ham, too, during the first half of this season, but a hamstring injury in December ruled him out for a couple months and he only managed to return to a reduced role.  On Tuesday, West Ham confirmed that they did not take up their option to buy, releasing the player back to Chelsea, just as Chelsea had done with Falcao and Pato.

Loanees Victor Moses, Emmanuel Emenike and Alex Song will also return to their parent clubs at the end of their season-long loan deals.

Before heading out on loan last summer, Moses signed a new four-year (!) contract with Chelsea and collected a £2.5m loan fee from West Ham.  Plenty of other Premier League teams with whom he can try his luck on loan for a similar fee, I suppose.
