Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has revealed that he would like to sign winger Victor Moses from Chelsea on a permanent basis in the summer, the Daily
The Nigerian international has spent this season on loan at the Britannia Stadium and has shown impressive form, including last time out at Aston Villa, where he won and converted the penalty which earned the Potters a 2-1 win which lifted them to 36 points with 12 Premier League games still to play.
He joined Chelsea in the summer of 2012 after spending three years at Wigan Athletic, and despite making nearly 50 appearances in his first campaign at Stamford Bridge, has not been part of Jose Mourinho’s plans since he began his second spell as Blues manager in June 2013.
Moses spent last season on loan at Liverpool, where he was mainly used as a substitute and helped them to second place. And now, with a long-term future at Chelsea looking unlikely, Hughes is keen to have him at Stoke on a permanent basis, or at least another season-long loan.
He said: ‘Victor is still a Chelsea player, we’re very pleased with what he’s producing,’ Hughes said on Friday. ‘We have given him the opportunity and he’s in a good place. We’d ideally love to be able to take him if we can but that won’t be our decision. Things have to fall in place but if there was an opportunity to bring Victor next season we’d love to do it.’
