Italian giants Inter Milan have confirmed the signing of Nigerian player Victor Moses who will wear No. 11 for the Nerazzurri.
Moses joins Inter from Chelsea after cutting his loan stint at Turkish club Fenerbahçe where he played 23 games in one and a half-season.
“It’s an honour for me to be here and be an Inter player. I’d like to thank everyone for the welcome I’ve been given, I can’t wait to start,” the 29-year-old told Inter TV in his first interview as an Inter player.
Moses reunites with Inter coach Antonio Conte whom he worked with at Chelsea for two seasons between 2016 and 2018.
It was the Italian manager who revived the Nigerian’s Chelsea career turning the forward to a wing-back in his 3-4-3 system.
In the 2016/2017 season, Moses was an important player for Chelsea and made 33 appearances for the Conte side that won the Premier League title.
Despite his struggles with injuries the following season, Moses had a good end to the season and helped Chelsea to the FA Cup title.
“Having the opportunity to work with the Coach again is something I’m really happy about,” Moses also said.
“I’ve spoken to him and he’s already explained the Club’s project to me. I want to be part of it, I’m happy to be here.
“I’ll give my all and want to help the team. There’s a lot of quality here, I want to make my contribution out on the pitch and enjoy myself. That's the most important thing.”
Moses is the eighth Nigerian player to wear the Inter Milan jersey following in the footsteps of the likes of Taribo West, Obafemi Martins, Kanu Nwankwo, Joel Obi, Obinna Nsofor, Nwankwo Obiora and Roberto Ogunseye.
The loan deal also includes an option to purchase the player for €12m in the summer.
Inter is Moses’s eighth club of his career. The Nigerian started his professional career at Crystal Palace before he moved to Wigan where he first made his name.
A move to Chelsea followed before loan stints at Liverpool, West Ham and Stoke City before he became a regular player under Conte at Chelsea.
