The move was Moses sixth loan deal since he joined Chelsea, having spent short terms with Liverpool, Stoke City, West Ham, Fenerbache and Inter Milan.

He made an impression in Moscow, proving instrumental as Spartak finished runner up to Zenit St. Petersburg in the Russian league.

Moses, a scorer of 12 goals in 37 appearances for Nigeria, played at the 2014 and 2018 World Cups and was part of the Super Eagles squad that won the African Nations Cup in 2013.
