Super Eagles winger Victor Moses says he’s hoping to make the fans proud during his season-long loan from Chelsea.
Stoke City’s latest signing, who agreed the move from Stamford Bridge on Saturday, also revealed he turned down a number of opportunities to play for Mark Hughes’ Potters for the 2014/15 campaign.
The pacey forward, equally adept up front and out on the wing, could now be in line to feature in Stoke’s game away at Hull City on Sunday.
“I’m very delighted to be here,” he told Stoke City Player.
“I spoke to the manager before I came and it looks as though the Club is moving in the right direction.
“I had a few options to go to other clubs but when I heard about Stoke I knew that they had a good manager and I thought it would be good to come here and work under him.
“He’s a great manager, and was a great footballer too, and for me to play under him will be a great achievement.
“I just want to give 110% to the Club and hopefully we will achieve what the Club are looking to do this season.”
Moses arrives at the Britannia Stadium following a summer playing alongside Peter Odemwingie for Nigeria at the World Cup.
Participating for the Super Eagles in Brazil has meant an extended break for both players, but Moses hopes he can hit the ground running to feature as much as possible after a loan-spell with Liverpool last year proved to be a disappointing time.
“I didn’t play as many games as I would have liked to at Liverpool last season but that’s football and I’ve got to put that aside,” he added.
“The most important thing now is that I’m at Stoke and I’m here to help the Club achieve what we’re looking for this season.
“I want to enjoy my football when I’m out there, to score goals and create chances.
“As long as I’m enjoying my football then that is the most important thing.
“I’m here to do a job for the Club and I’m very pleased to be here.
