Victor Moses‘ loan move to Spartak Moscow is not in jeopardy despite delays over the wing back’s medical.
The Nigerian has verbally agreed to join the Russian club on a season-long loan that will see him sign a one-year contract extension at Chelsea as a result of his current deal running out next summer.
According to Goal, Moses has agreed in principle to join Spartak after Inter Milan did not pick up an option to buy after he spent last season on loan in Serie A.
The 29-year-old has until Saturday to complete a switch to Spartak Moscow.
Last month Frank Lampard said that Moses was not part of the club’s coronvirus testing group and would be looking for a move.
Chelsea, who have 30 players already out on loan, are still trying to find new homes for Danny Drinkwater, Jake Clarke-Salter and Baba Rahman.
The latter has interest from a number of Championship clubs, including Watford and Middlesbrough, and they have until Friday to confirm moves.
The Russian transfer window shuts on Saturday. Spartak are joint-top with Zenit St Petersburg, accuring 21 points from 10 games.
