Nigeria’s Victor Moses Signs Contract Extension With Chelsea

Nigeria international Victor Moses signed a two-year contract extension with English powerhouse Chelsea on Wednesday to commit himself to the team until 2021.

Moses signed for the Blues from Wigan Athletic in August 2012 for a reported £9m.

Since then, he has found it difficult to secure a regular spot in the Chelsea squad. Moses spent the last three seasons out on loan at other English clubs including Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United.

This season is a different story. Under new coach Antonio Conte, Moses has become pivotal to Chelsea’s success.

Conte took a profound liking in the Nigerian after seeing how well he molded into the side’s 3-4-3 formation as a right wing-back. Since then, the former Crystal Palace youth product has started every game for the Blues.

In 28 matches this season, Moses has scored four goals and tallied two assists.

Chelsea have won 20 of their 26 Premier League matches this campaign and boast a 10-point lead at the top of the table with 12 matches remaining in the season.

They will hope to continue their winning ways on Monday when they pay a visit to the London Stadium to take on a struggling West Ham United. Moses will hope to get the better of some of his ex-teammates and ex-coach Slaven Bilic.
