Stoke City’s on-loan winger victor Moses has been ruled out for the rest of the season, after the Chelsea midfielder picked up a hamstring injury in the Potters’ 1-1 draw against West Ham last weekend, reports
The Nigerian international, 24, has greatly impressed during his time at the Britannia Stadium this season, and manager Mark Hughes has made it clear that he wants to sign the young winger on a permanent basis in the summer, despite his recent injury setback.
Hughes recently revealed Moses was now likely out for the remainder of the campaign, but was very pleased with his performances for the Premier League side. He said: “It may well be that Victor’s season is over unfortunately because of the type of injury he has got. He might get back but at the moment we’re probably thinking that he won’t make it. It’s a shame because Victor has done really well since he’s been with us.”
Stoke have enjoyed a good season too, with City on course for a top-half finish and with a chance of beating the record points tally. Moses has been to thank for a lot of their points this season, as he’s scored and created some important goals.
“He’ll look back on his time with us and think he’s made an impression and done well and we’d agree with that because he’s been a really important figure for us this season,” added Hughes.
After being surplus to requirements at Chelsea, the 24-year-old has been seeking out a club who will give him regular game time. A spell at Liverpool last season didn’t go well, but Moses looks a perfect fit at the Britannia in 2014/15.
