Victor Moses, Emmanuel Emenike’s Departure From West Ham Confirmed


West Ham United have confirmed Victor Moses departure as he returns to parent club Chelsea, while forward Emmanuel Emenike will also return to Fenerbahce.

In a release of their list of retained players, the Hammers also confirmed Cameroon Midfielder Alex Song’s departure to Barcelona and that of defender Joey O’Brien who will leave the club after five years when his contract expires at the end of June.

Chelsea winger Victor Moses, since his big-time move to the Blues from Wigan Athletic, has spent the last four seasons playing for four different Premier League teams.

Combined with his 2+ seasons at Wigan, 25-year-old Moses now has well over 150 Premier League appearances to his name.  After spending time and impressing fairly regularly at Chelsea, Liverpool, Stoke City, and most recently West Ham United, he can’t quite manage to get settled anywhere.

Moses, who has made just one competitive appearance for Chelsea since May 2013, made 21 appearances for West Ham during the 2015-16 season.

Before heading out on loan last summer, Moses signed a new four-year contract with Chelsea and collected a £2.5m loan fee from West Ham.

The former Crystal Palace starlet endured a disappointing loan spell at Liverpool during the 2013-14 season, but enjoyed a far more successful campaign at Stoke City the following year before injury struck.

On Tuesday, West Ham confirmed that they did not take up their option to buy, releasing the player back to Chelsea, just as Chelsea had done with Falcao and Pato.

West Ham’s co-chairman David Gold explained on Monday the club intended to identify and bring in better players to replace those who will leave ahead of their move to the Olympic Stadium. The Club thanked all those departing for their efforts and wished them well in their future careers.
