Stoke City are reportedly plotting a move to sign Chelsea Winger Victor Moses for next season.
The Metro claims the deal is very close to completion as all three parties – the player, buying club and selling club – are keen to get a deal done. Not too long ago, a permanent move to Stoke City for Moses seemed like a foregone conclusion.
The on-loan winger really settled well under manager Mark Hughes, becoming an integral part of an evolving and almost promising side (alongside similarly revitalized, later injured Bojan Krkić).
Just as the rumor mill was starting to kick into gear, the Chelsea loanee got hurt and was ruled out for the rest of the season. As usual in such cases, he had returned to Cobham for treatment and rehab and his Stoke future was suddenly not so obvious.
It’s unclear which option Stoke are pursuing or which they would prefer, but the local paper claims that Mark Hughes would be okay with either.
