Fenerbahce managed to sign Victor Moses on an 18-month loan from Chelsea despite Fulham making a more attractive offer a source close to the Super Lig outfit revealed to Turkish-Football.

The Cottagers offered Moses £3m on a six-month deal but Fenerbahce sporting director Damien Comolli managed to get the Nigeria international to agree to a deal worth £1.8m for 18 months.

Comolli is well connected in the Premier League following stints at Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool and played a key role in negotiations with Chelsea and the 28-year-old winger in January.

Moses left Chelsea after struggling for playing time under the stewardship of Maurizio Sarri despite playing a major role in the Chelsea side that was crowned 2016-17 Premier League champions under former manager Antonio Conte.

There have been rumours in the Turkish press that the Blues are considering bringing Moses back over the summer to cope with the transfer ban.

Chelsea would be able to recall Moses but would not be able to play him which makes it highly unlikely that they will recall him at the end of the season.

Moses has hit the ground running at Fenerbahce scoring two goals in 12 league appearances.

The powerful winger started in the 1-1 draw against bitter rivals Galatasaray in the most recent Intercontinental derby.

Fenerbahce have hit a rich vein in form since Moses joined losing just two games following his arrival.

The Yellow Canaries take on rivals Trabzonspor next at home.
