Moses: Loan spells were hard on me

Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses has spoken about the difficulties associated with being loaned out on a long-term basis.

The Nigerian signed for the Blues in 2012, after a successful season at Wigan Athletic, but spent most of his time out on loan at Stoke City, Liverpool, and West Ham United.

Moses, who has recently established himself as a vital cog in Antonio Conte's Chelsea machine, has revealed that the loan spells was a frustrating time in his career.

"I've been a little bit frustrated, I'm not going to lie," he told Sport Magazine.

"You spend about a month-plus in the hotel before you find your own place to stay – stuff there kind of plays in your head, and obviously the kids have to go to another place, go to school.

"I've not actually had time to relax. When the season finishes, you have to move back to London again, and those kind of things play in a footballer's head."
