Victor Moses looks set to re-join the Chelsea Loan Army for a fourth go-around, 2.5 years after Antonio Conte plucked him out of that nameless morass, reshaped him as a wing-back, and elevated him to a key player in a title-winning side.
Alas, once Conte was gone, so were Moses’s prospects of playing time. The 28-year-old has featured for less than 200 minutes across six total appearances under Maurizio Sarri, and none since the end of September.
According to multiple reports over the past 24 hours, he’s set to put somewhat of an end to those frustrations by heading out on loan for the second half of the season, and joining struggling(!) Fenerbahce. Fener, one of the powerhouses of the Turkish Super Lig, are above the relegation zone just on goal difference halfway through the season (after finishing a more appropriate second last year!) and could use all the help they can get.
While the club’s financial difficulties make it unlikely that Moses could turn this into a permanent move, the main idea will be to get playing time he’s so desperately lacked in the first half of the season.
