Moses seals Liverpool loan move

Created on Sept. 02, 2013 4:48 PM EST

Victor Moses has completed a season-long deal from Chelsea to Liverpool, becoming Brendan Rodgers' third signing of deadline day.

The Nigeria international moved to Stamford Bridge from Wigan last year, but the prospect of a lack of first-team opportunities this term has seen him opt to leave for Anfield. 

Moses made 42 appearances for Chelsea last season, scoring 10 goals, including goals in both legs of their UEFA Europa League semi-final against Basel.

He becomes Liverpool's eighth close-season signing, and told the club's official website he was excited about the switch.

"First and foremost, I'm delighted to have made the loan from Chelsea to a big club like Liverpool," he said. "The target is to get into the top four and for the club to compete in the Champions League - and I'm delighted to be here.

"The manager has done very well and the formation and players here will help me and I just want to gel in, get to know the players and play with them.

"There are a lot of quality players here - they're winning games and creating chances. It's a massive thing for me to be here."

Moses becomes the third player to join Liverpool on Monday, with Mamadou Sakho and Tiago Ilori having already been unveiled ahead of the transfer deadline.
