Victor Moses has every intention of returning to Chelsea after his season-long loan at Stoke City.

The 23-year-old made the move to Stamford Bridge from Wigan Athletic in 2012 but struggled to impose himself on the first team amid the club's array of attacking talent.

A loan move to Liverpool last season and his stay at Stoke this term would suggest Moses does not figure in Jose Mourinho's first-team plans at Stamford Bridge.

But the Nigerian international, for the time being, still sees his long-term future in west London.

"I am still a Chelsea player," Moses told the Stoke Sentinel. "I am here to help Stoke as a club to make sure they are in the right position in the Premier League. And I will keep working hard and trying to help the team as long as I am here.

"I just want to play football and obviously the manager has given me the opportunity. I am starting to enjoy my football again."

Chelsea are currently overloaded with players capable of playing across an attacking trio behind the main striker.

Eden Hazard, Willian, Oscar, Mohamed Salah and Andre Schurrle all currently offer Mourinho options in the first team this season, but Moses is likely to face further competition when the club's clutch of loanees return to the club next summer.

Christian Atsu, Thorgan Hazard, Lucas Piazon and Bertrand Traore are all enjoying loan spells across Europe with the hope of forcing their way into the first team next season.

However, the prospect of intense competition for places has already seen some of those youngsters out on loan consider the possibility of permanent moves away from Stamford Bridge, including 20-year-old Piazon, on loan at Frankfurt in the Bundesliga.

"I came from Brazil directly to Chelsea. I know all the people in the club. Of course, I wish to once again play there. But football is a surprise, because everything can change quickly," the Brazilian said in September.

"I am only 20 and, as I said, anything can happen in football. If everything fits, of course I can imagine staying at Frankfurt."
