Nigeria international Victor Moses is in line for another season-long loan as he is expected to join West Ham before deadline day.
But the 24-year-old winger will likely sign a new contract with Chelsea before he joins up with Slaven Bilic’s team.
The former Wigan Athletic man has two years left on his current contract with the English champions.
Despite his impressive performance for the Blues during the pre-season tour, Moses has been shut out of the Chelsea first-team this season though the attacking winger did reveal recently that he is undergoing treatment for a minor injury.
But the arrival of Spanish international Pedro from FC Barcelona now means Moses has further fallen in the pecking order of the Chelsea front men and will have to spend another year on loan.
The last two seasons has seen the Nigerian play on loan at Liverpool and Stoke City, where he put up a decent display.
Moses joined Chelsea in the summer of 2012 on a five-year contract.
