Victor Moses' chances of joining Spartak Moscow on a permanent basis may have been jeopardised as the club's manager Domenico Tedesco casts doubt on the future of the player at the Otkrytie Arena.

The former Super Eagles winger joined the Russian side in the summer on a season-long loan deal in his sixth temporary move away from Stamford Bridge since his arrival from Wigan in 2012.

However, reports from the Russian club reveals that Moses might be returning to Chelsea at the end of the season as his manager seems unimpressed with his performances so far.

And this means the Blues' opportunity to cash in the Nigerian star may be uncertain as Tedesco demands more fitness level from the player.

Before now, Moses had spent time at Liverpool, Inter Milan, West Ham, Stoke City and Fenerbache but none has been able to acquire his services from the EPL club.

The Red-Whites' boss Tedesco quoted as saying he was not happy with the Nigerian despite playing full time in their 1-1 draw against Dinamo Moscow according to Sport Express.

"Victor Moses is not yet at the level that I want to see him. We will need time to get the players back to the required level. This applies not only to Victor but also to the others.
"Yes, I am satisfied with [Aleksandr] Kokorin’s performance. We did not have the opportunity to involve [Aleksandr] Sobolev.

"Today we saw the strengths of Alexandr. But Kokorin, like Moses, did not pass the winter training camp, and we need to get them back in shape."

The publication claims Spartak have halted their plans to sign the 29-year-old at the end of the season, as revealed by general director Shamil Gazizov who spoke to Nobel Arustamyan on his YouTube channel.

"No, the loan cost €300,000 (£268,000) and the option to buy will be €5million (£4.47million). It is also possible not to buy Moses. But when Victor and I talked, his main desire was to find a club."

Meanwhile, Moses is still contracted to Chelsea until the summer of 2022 but they are hoping to cash in on him early to avoid allowing him to leave on a free transfer.
