Hughes Wants Moses Despite New Injury

Hughes Wants Moses Despite New Injury

–Eagles star returns to Chelsea

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes says he remains interested in signing Victor Moses on a permanent deal despite the on-loan Chelsea winger’s latest injury.

Moses limped out of the Potters’ draw at West Ham on Saturday with a hamstring injury and has been ruled out for the season in a blow to Stoke City’s hopes of securing a top-10 finish.

This would be the Nigerian’s third spell on the sidelines during his season-long stint at the Britannia Stadium.

Stoke have already confirmed they would like to keep Moses and Hughes said the Nigerian’s injury record would not put him off.

He said: “Because he is an explosive player, the hamstring is always a danger, and so he will always be a bit susceptible to those kind of injuries.

“But that won’t affect my thinking on other decisions we make with Victor.

He has done well for us this season, but he is a Chelsea player and so they decide on the timing of talks.”

Meanwhile the Nigeria international will return to parent club Chelsea for treatment following the results of a scan at Stoke’s training ground on Monday.
